Lyrics

VP_001216 Verse 1The harvest moon is shining o'er the valley, The song birds all have sung sweet lullaby, The goldenrod is waving in the meadows Where just a year ago we said goodbye. I seem to see you once again beside me, You vainly ask me not to go away, Your tearful eyes I cannot help recalling, As here with lonely heart to you, I say: Chorus 1Elaine, Elaine, oh call me back again, Forgive, forget the past and all its pain Your smile will seem like sunshine after rain Then say you love but me Elaine, Elaine. Verse 2The mem'ry of your voice is always with me, The sweetest dream of all the dreams I know Is when within my arms I gently hold you And you kiss me as in days of long ago. The moonlight on the goldenrod aglist'ning Will hold no charms for me until again We meet as in the days before we parted, When you were all the world to me, Elaine.
