Forsaken love

They stood in the moonlight near by the gate
Goodbye my darling I know you'll wait
She ceased her weeping, and smiled through her tears
Saying I've been true love thruough these long years

For on tomorrow at the break of day
He was to journey for far away
He held her closer his promised bride
And to her questions these words repliced

    I've loved you always, Yes I've been true
    My heart shall never be loveless for you
    Oh Darling believe me, far over the sea
    Though live or death so faithful I'll be

One year passed by, He's coming home
His pilgrimage over, no longer to roam
And smiling he thinks of her shining eyes
Shining with welcome, a glad surprise

A dainty letter he takes from his breast
To which he extends his lips close pressed
And reading once more by the warming light
These words he had spoken to her that night

 * Refrain

nce more he's reached the old garden gate
But he arrives alas, alas it's too late
The wedding is over, The knot is tied
He finds his darling another's bride

And later they found him there on the grass
A pistol near by him told what had passed
They saw the letter explaining the deed
And in the pale moonlight these words she did read

 * Refrain
