TRUE AS THE STARS ABOVE.
Copyright, 1887, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words and Music by F. G. Richmond.

His ship at anchor safely lay,
And he was by my side,
That night he had to sail away,
Across the ocean wide;
He look'd into my eyes and said,
One vow I'll ask of thee,
When I am far on ocean's bed,
Wilt thou be true to me?

Chorus.
True as the stars above
Will I be to thee!
Never forgetting, dear,
That you love me!
Thinking of thee alone
On the stormy sea;
Praying that thou wilt come,
My darling, to me.

A year has pass'd, but not a word
From him I held so dear,
In dreams I saw him and I heard
His sweet voice low and clear;
But when from sleep I would arise,
My heart was fill'd with fear;
And when the daylight gently dies,
His words rang in my ear:

Chorus.
True as the stars above
Will I be to thee!
Never forgetting, dear,
That you love me!
Thinking of thee alone
On the stormy sea;
Praying that thou wilt come,
My darling, to me.

One Summer evening when the sun
Was giving his last ray,
A noble ship with canvas spread
Came sailing up the bay;
My heart did leap to see my boy,
As on the shore he came;
And between the smiles and tears of joy
I whisper'd this refrain:

Chorus.
True as the stars above
Have I been to thee!
Never forgetting, dear,
That you loved me!
Thinking of thee alone
On the stormy sea:
I've pray'd that thou would come,
My darling, to me.

How Happy I Could be with Either.

How happy I could be with either,
Were t'other dear charmer away;
But while you thus tease me together,
To neither a word will I say.

Ri tol de rol, lol de rol, li do, &c

How happy I could be with either,
Dear, dear maids, so beauteous and gay;
And with thee my heart it would ever
Its love and affection convey.
Ri tol de rol, lol de rol, li do, &c.

How happy I could be with either,
To charm by night and by day;
To be to each one a fond lover,
And pass hours of pleasure away.
Ri tol de rol, lol de rol, li do, &c.
