SONGS OF THE SOLDIERS AND SAILORS. 23
19. I MAY BE GONE FOR A LONG, LONG TIME.
I may be gone for a long, long time, Long, long time; long, long time; But when I go You will know
That I'll always pine
For the clay when you'll be mine. Be true to me for a long, long time, Rain or shine, sweetheart mine,
And I'll be just as true to you
As to the Red, "White, and Blue, Though I'm gone for a long, long time.
(Copyright, 1917, by Broadway Music Corporation, Will Von Tilzer, president*
14a West Forty-fiiih Street, New York City.)
20. SEND ME A CURL.
There's a corner in my heart That I'm keeping all apart
For the little girl I left behind. I can see her waiting there With the flowers in her hair
And the roses in her cheeks entwined; So when you're thinking of me over yonder, When you wonder what I want to wear, Send a pretty little curl From the sweetest little girl in my home town.
(Used by permission of Huntzinger & Dilworth, publishers.)
21. THE STAMMERING SONG-
K-K-K-Katy, beautiful Katy,
You're the only g-g-g-girl that I adore;
When the m-m-m-moon shines over the c-c-c-cow shed, I'll be waiting at the k-k-k-kitchen door.
