Lillie Mae-Frank Tannehill
Piano in Bb

I went out strolling one day
I found a girl named Lillie Mae
I was around her night and day
Trying to find out Lillie's ways

I left out of Chicago one day
When she got up and drove me away
But I can't stay
Away from Lillie Mae

When I arrived, I dropped her a card
Asking, oh, why she left me down so hard
'Cause I can't stay
Away from Lillie Mae

Ah, she looked so good, she looked so kind
She suited me fine
She had a lovely expression
But she wouldn't talk to me at times

She wrote me for a last time
You ought to see me coming down that railroad line
'Cause I can't stay
Away from Lillie Mae

Instrumental

I called her up on the telephone
"Look-a here, Lillie, I'm coming on home."
I can't stay
Away from Lillie Mae

I arrived, I dropped her a card
Asking, oh why she left me down so hard
'Cause I can't stay
Away from Lillie Mae

She looked so good, she looked so kind
She suited me fine
She had a lovely expression
But she wouldn't talk to me at times

She wrote me for a last time
You ought to see me coming down that railroad line
'Cause I can't stay
Away from Lillie Mae
