American Old Time Song Lyrics: 04 Parted
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 4
By Cyril Byrd.
Oh. the days are so long
Since my Jamie crossed the sea,
For we quarreled: I was wrong,
And he comes not back to me.
While I live, love and wait,
Shall his wistful eyes forgive,
As before, at the gate.
That he loved me well I knew,
But when lovers pressed around,
I vexed his heart so true,
Just to make his love profound.-Chorus.
All the years of my life
I shall wait for him in vain,
I can never be his wife;
Never see his face again.-Chorus.
