VP_007798 Verse 1Do you recall the hour we parted One summer's morn so long ago Can you forget the kiss I gave you, The sweetest one I'll ever know. I thought the sacred vow we plighted, Would prove a golden charm. I dream'd two hearts in love united, Could brave life's angry storm I little knew how well I loved you, Until a doubting heart, Had warned me of your lost devotion And whispered "we must part." Farewell, dear heart, Farewell, dear heart, 'Twere better that we'd never met. Farewell, dear heart, Farewell, dear heart, Each ling'ring moment brings regret. You bid me go, and we must part, Tho' life will be one dreary spell. Each waking hour I'll think of you, Farewell, dear hear, farewell, farewell. Verse 2How oft I've gazed upon thy image, And thought how wondrous sweet and fair. Thine eyes were like the stars at evening, Thy friendship holy and sincere. How oft the thought would come to cheer me, There's one who loves me still. And when I knew I'd soon be near thee, My soul with joy would thrill. Alas I find the tie is broken That bound two loving hearts Alas the fatal word is spoken And cherished hope departs. Farewell, dear heart, Farewell, dear heart, 'Twere better that we'd never met. Farewell, dear heart, Farewell, dear heart, Each ling'ring moment brings regret. You bid me go, and we must part, Tho' life will be one dreary spell. Each waking hour I'll think of you, Farewell, dear hear, farewell, farewell.
