My Sweet Valentine

by Ukulele Jim



"My Sweet Valentine, Ukulele Jim’s Valentine offering, echoes something that most people in love have felt – unrequited love. Rendered in his simple, yet musically rich voice, the song will have you listening intently to what he has to say. If you are going to be alone this Valentine’s Day, here is a song that will keep you company." (Review by Radio Maverick)

Chords are available from songbook.ukulelejim.com


Valentine, sweet valentine, my blushing bride
Why aren't you happy here by my side?
Tell me the reason why you won't abide
Oh, how I've tried, my sweet valentine

Valentine, I love you but you don't love me
Being my partner brings you misery
There's something inside you that longs to be free
It's sad to see, my sweet valentine

I'm sorry it's a hard life
I'm not a man of high means
But if you'll stick around
I won't let you down
In time you could find
That you might change your mind
I need you...

My valentine, sweet valentine, here is my plan
I'm gonna love you for as long as I can
And if you should leave me for some other man
I'll understand, my sweet valentine

Somehow, I'll understand
My sweet valentine
But for now, take my hand
My sweet valentine
