I'll Wait Till the Clouds Roll By.
Copyright, 1882, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Willie, tho' sad our parting,
I'll still be true to thee;
Fondly my heart will follow
Over the stormy sea!
Tho' I shall miss thee, my darling,
Tho' I shall sorrow and sigh.
Yet thy dear words I'll heed, love,
I'll wait till the clouds roll by!
I'll wait till the clouds roll by, Willie,
I'll wait till the clouds roll by;
Soon will the dawn be breaking,
I'll wait till the clouds roll by.
Willie, the days are weary,
But long I'll not repine,
Darkly the skies are frowning,
'Neath them the star-rays shine;
Deep in my heart I will treasure
Each thought of thee, tho' I sigh;
Boon will the sun be shiningI'll wait till the clouds roll by.-Chorus.
Willie, tho' far you're sailing,
I know again we'll meet;
Brightly the future's dawning,
Tranquil, and fair, and sweet;
Love in the heart lives forever,
Tho' we may sorrow and sigh;
True to my love, my dearest,
I'll wait the clouds roll by.-Chorus.
