SWEET LOVE, BE_ TRUE TO ME.
Copyright, 1886, by J. C. Groene & Co.
Words and Music by Thos. LeMack.
My heart is where my darling dwells,
In a land so far away;
Oh, would that I was near her,
I'd forever with her stay.
I'll never forget at parting,
As we stood by the sea,
She whispered in my heart,
Sweet love, be ever true to me.
Sweet love, be true to me,
She whispered by the sea;
When you are on the oeeau wild,
I'll fondly dream of thee.
Farewell, you must not weep,
Tis only for a while;
When Winter's o'er I shall return
With Spring's bright, happy smile.
In all of earth's beauties,
Flowers, rich and rare,
Nature never smiled upon
A flower so rich and fair.
When evening shades were falling.
We would wander side by side,
To a quiet shade that nature made.
For me to woo my bride.-Chorus.
