"Sweet Lorraine" is a popular song by Cliff Burwell (music) and Mitchell Parish (lyrics) that was published in 1928 and has become a jazz standard.[1] It was written in F major and has an AABA structure.[2]

A version by Teddy Wilson charted briefly in 1935.[3] The song probably kept its place in public awareness because of recordings by Nat "King" Cole.[1]
