Key: Bb / Capo: 1st / Play: A

As I walked by the lake one day
By chance my Dorraine pasted my way
Then she and I walked hand in hand 
A      B7              E
On the banks of Ponchartrain
I pinned a flower on her heart
I swore we'd never be apart
She vowed her love forever
E                           A
And as I kissed her did the same

A           D
Dorraine my Dorraine
My dark haired little angel 
E                 A
My bell of Ponchartrain

We sat down on the dock
And with our hearts and fingers locked
We laughed and talked and joked about
When our names are the same
And joking I said honey
Are you marrying me for money
And it took just one quick look to tell
It hurt my dear Dorraine

She jumped and stood above me
And she cried why you don't love me
I'm rowing home accross the lake
You won't see me again
I called and called some more
But she rowed fast from the shore
And the clouds brought by a wind 
Began to rain on Ponchartrain

Dorraine I called Dorraine
Come back me little angel
My bell of Ponchartrain

The storm should make her learn
That she should make a swift return
But as the rain fell harder
I lost sight of my Dorraine
As panic gripped my heart
I drew the ores and made my start
To look for her on ragging waters
And the rain on Ponchartrain

At darkness I still call
But no one heard my cries at all
And when the daybreak came then others
Helped me look for my Dorraine
But there was not a thing afloat
Except the ores from her rowboat
For all was lost upon the choppy waves
And rain on Ponchartrain

Now I come day after day
To where my sweetheart rowed away
And I gaze across the water
Of the raining Ponchartrain
Just one thing and nothing more
Ever floated back to shore
Was this flower I hold it is the one
I pinned on my Dorraine

Dorraine my Dorraine
My dark haired little angel 
My bell of Ponchartrain
