American Old Time Song Lyrics: 08 Carrie Dear
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 8
Sung by Fred. Klett.
Oh. Carrie, dear, I think of thee,
My heart is full of love,
I hope the time I will soon see.
When you're my turtle dove;
I'll ne'er forget when we did part,
You said to me, good-bye,
I'm sure you know it broke my heart,
As fears dropped from my eye.
Whene'er I think of you, I say,
I wish that you were here;
I hope it will be soon the day,
When you're my Carrie, dear.
Believe that I do love you still,
Although I'm far from thee,
I never shall contented be,
Until once more your face I see;
And then how happy I will be,
To be with you once more,
My heart will overflow with glee,
Still thee I do adore.-Chorus.
If I could only hear your voice,
And see your face again,
Ten thousand times I would rejoice,
No more my heart would pain;
I hope the time it may be soon,
When you will sure be mine,
Together through this world we'll roam,
No more will I then pine.
I'm sure we will enjoy our life,
No more then will I fear,
For you will be my darling wife,
My own sweet Carrie, dear.
