LONG BEFORE YOUR TIME

You ask me why I look so sad on this bright summer day
Or why the tears are in my eyes and I seem so far away
Well sit yourself beside me here and put your hand in mine
And I ll tell of someone I loved long, long before your time

I m sitting here and thinking of those days so long ago
When I was just a child like you and a girl I used to know
Though fields of green we laughed and played and sang our
merry rhymes
Oh summer days were warmer then, long before your time

Through Childhood years our love did bloom till our hearts were
just as one
And we promised each eternal love in the church before the town
We settled in this little house, I was proud to call her mine
Oh we were young and happy then, long before your time

One lovely year was all we had until the sickness came
And stole the roses from her cheeks my tears they fell like rain
For nine long months she carried you but in the end she died
She chose to go so you might live, long, long before your time

So you ask me why I look so sad on this bright summers day
Or why the tears are in my eyes and I seem so far away
it s just you seem a lot like her, when your eyes look into mine
And you smile so much like she did long, long before your time
