Try these changes. I play it along with the album and it sounds right.
The intro progression is somewhat different, but I think it's just an
E-A-B-A kind of thing. Let me know if you think this is better.

My love no more I'll see I've thought of you in far-off places Puzzled over lipstick traces So help me God, I will not try And then I think of Lorelei I've traveled far and wandered wide An old photograph of you beside me Old Man River seems so shy (?) And he remembers Lorelei CHORUS If I should float upon this stream And see you in my madman's dream I'd sink into your troubled eyes And none would know save Lorelei CHORUS: Oh, river river river have mercy... But if my ship which sails tomorrow Should crash against these rocks, my sorrows I will drown, before I die It's you I'll see, not Lorelei E
