ONLY A YEAR.
Copyright, 1889. by Spaulding A Kornder.
Words by J. K. Mitchell. Music by K. W. Cunard.

Beside the sea she stood and sang-ah!
Only a year, 'tis only a little year,
Yet it has brought me many a bitter tear.
Only a year past, in the sweet summer tide,
I stood beside him his promised bride,
Ships that go sailing over the ocean
Oft bring the sailor to his last sleep -
There lies my darling sunk in its bosom,
Waves singing over him low And deep.
Only a year, 'tis only a little year,
Yet it has brought me many a bitter tear.
Only a year past, in the sweet summer tide,
I stood beside him his promised bride.

Close by her side in the gloaming somebody stands-
Now she is close to his bosom, hands meeting hands.
Ah! there is joy, there is gladness, hearts beat with glee.
Thoughts of the past are all vanished, 'tis he, 'tis he!-Ah!
