The Happiest Days Of All

 

I wondered today on the sea shore

The waves and the winds are low

I thought of the days gone by Maud

Many long years ago

 

We lingered by the gently flowing billows

And watch the golden sunset fade away

And there among the sweet ocean breezes

We talked about our future wedding day

 

Gathering up the shells from the sea shore

Gathering up the shells from the sea

Those were the happiest days of all Maud

Gathering up the shells from the shore

 

When the waves are rolling on the ocean

And the golden moonbeams on the pebbles shine

At your cottage by the sea I'll come again Maud

When the waves are rolling gently sweetheart mine

 

Now I am growing up in years Maud

My locks are all silver and gray

But the vows that we made on the shore Maud

Are fresh in my memory today

 

No more bright shells we will gather

As the waves come dashing as of yore

She lies neith the white pebbled sand

Just covered up with shells on the shore
