Shimbo Darktree Lyr Req: My Sari Marais? / Sarie Marais (31) Lyr Add: SARIE MARAIS 11 Dec 99

When I was at primary school (YEARS ago) we were taught this song. We were told it was from South Africa. You can have what I remember (first verse and chorus) but it will have the flaws of a child's memory.

My Sarie Marais is so far from my heart,
And I long to be with her again,
She lived on a farm by the Moie(???) River bank,
Before I left on this campaign.
Oh take me back to the old Transvaal,
That's where I long to be,
Way yonder 'mong the mealies by the green thorny tree,
That's where she's waiting for me,
I wonder if I'll ever see that green thorny tree,
Where Sarie is waiting for me.

Any South African Mudcatters?
