When You and I Were Boys.

My heart is sad to-night, dear Tom,
While thinking of the past;
The past when all was bright, dear Tom,
But days like those can't last.
I never can forget those days,
And all our childhood's joys;
I see them far through mem'ry's page,
When you and I were boys.

Those happy days will come no more,
With all their cares and joys.
But still I love you as of old,
When you and I were boys.

We've wandered far from home and friends,
And all we loved most dear;
But to those friends my heart still bends
Through ev'ry by-gone year.
And oft in dreams I see your face,
That makes my heart rejoice;
And all our fun and frolics trace,
When you and I were boys.-Chorus

I often see the old school-house
That stood upon the hill,
'Tis pictured in my mem'ry, Tom,
It makes my pulses thrill.
I see the old mill standing there.
But hushed is all its noise;
'Tis changed around the old house, Tom,
Since you and I were boys.-Chorus.
