Chanson De Marie Antoinette (1770's) / La Jardinière Du Roi (1927) / Chanson Du Marie Antoinette (1938) / My Heart Cries For You (1950) / Mon Cœur Pleure Pour Vous (1951)



"My Heart Cries for You" is a popular song, adapted by Carl Sigman and Percy Faith from an 18th-century French melody "Chanson De Marie Antoinette". attributed to Dauphine of France, Queen Marie Antoinette.
The chorus "My heart cries for you, Sighs for you, dies for you..." is original and does not appear in the French song.

In 1927 Myron Jacobson (a Russian emigrant to the USA) adapted the French ballad and it was published in the USA (as "Marie Antoinette's Song").
English lyrics were written by Alice Mattullath in 1934






The song was also featured in the Wesley Ruggles' movie Cimarron (1931), based on Edna Ferber's 1929 novel Cimarron
