This is something that you WILL NOT believe ... but...

YUP, you guessed it ...

My mother's name was Marion as well!

And she was born in 1928 too :-)

...guess this makes four orders now!

Finally, here are the lyrics to the 1928 song of Marion, a waltz, from the original sheet music found in the Spencer Collection, Baylor University, Waco, Texas:

Marion (Love Theme of 4 Devils)

Words by Lew Pollack
Music by Erno Rapee

First Verse:

I just keep thinking of you
Tho' we quarrelled I still love you.
You're sweet and kind
Each day I find
You're always on my mind.

Chorus:

Just like I loved you then I love you now!
You're my Marion.
Each day just seems a year, my dear,
When you're not near.
You're all to me my Marion!
Although I did not know I loved you so, I do!
Marion - Oh I can't forget,
So please forgive I want you.

Second Verse:

Time and time I often wonder
Why my life has been a blunder
but now I see 'Twill always be
until you come back to me.

Thank you, Eddie, for finding the lyrics to the 1928 version of Marion. It has nice lyrics and hope some day I will be able to hear the melody as well. The words "sweet and kind" certainly describe the Marion I knew (my mother). She was a kind and gentle woman, who always thought of others rather than herself, so the lyrics fit as far as that is concerned.

I was just checking out the Spencer Collection/Baylor University site. It is certainly a good resource for sheet music and apparently they are adding to it all the time. Thanks again.

Flapper,

So glad you enjoyed them! You'll notice in the upper right hand corner of the Spencer home page a box called "Search"--you're supposed to be able to put in the title and it bring up all the songs of that title, as well as all their separate pages, but right now they're having trouble with it calling up titles that have nothing to do with the one requested. They're slowly working the bugs out.

Eddie,

I tried the search box on the Baylor U. site but couldn't bring up "Marion". I thought it must be one they haven't added as yet, as it said they would be adding more to the site as time goes on. Did you have to go to the University in person to find the lyrics? They certainly have a large collection, so I am keeping it in my "Favorites" for future reference. I love to look through old sheet music and friends have given me a few boxes over the years. It is like going treasure hunting for me. Thanks again.

Yes, but I often go down there on an afternoon anyway. When they get this thing working right, all the pages of each piece will be accessible to anybody anywhere, even Flappers!

When up and running properly, it will be a wonderful resource for those of us who enjoy browsing through old sheet music. Glad to hear they won't be excluding Flappers from accessing this treasure trove.

Thank for the lyrics Eddie,

I'll pass them on to my brother suggesting he'll sing (or at least read) them to his wife!

My Aunt Marion was born in 1917. She later changed the o to an a to make it more feminine. We all know who Marion Morrison was.

Don't forget the ultimate Marion:

Marion Robert Morrison or Marion Michael Morrison.

AKA: Duke or John Wayne
