Tell me truly that you love me,
And will keep your promise true;
You know that I did tell you truly, dear,
That I would come back to you;
And I want to see that old home,
Where I lived so many years;
And oh, how happy we will be, my dear,
No sorrow, no trouble need you fear;
Oh, those happy days have come and gone,
Take me to that home again,
Where I lived with my dear mother,
In that old house near the lane.

I'll be true, love, to you,
Tho' we may never meet for years;
I'll be true, love, to you,
You are my darling own, dear.

Now, the Summer time is gone, love,
And the flowers are at rest;
I'll think of you, my darling, loved one,
I'll think of one I loved so dear;
You must not forget your promise,
When we parted at the gate;
The night was dark as it could be, you know,
You told me that the hour was growing late;
Tho' these many years have past and gone,
Will you keep your promise true?
Do you love me now as then, love?
Tell me darling, tell me true.-Chorus.
