American Old Time Song Lyrics: 28 I Love You Best Of All
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 28
I LOVE YOU BEST OF ALL.
Copyright, 1890, by Harding Brothers.
Words by J. F. Mitchell. Music by Wm. Loralne.
In the flood-tide of my sorrow, in the vigil of each night.
In my fancy I can borrow from those days of glad delight,
When you said you loved me only, when you held my heart in thrall;
Though now I'm sad and lonely, still I love you best of all.
I love you best of all; though my love has brought nothing but pain.
The dream of the past makes fresh my life, like the sunshine after rain;
And the mem'ry of your voice, with its rhythmic rise and fall,
Proves there is none like the old, sweet love, And I love you beat of all.
Building dreams of regal splendor, you were mine, my lowly queen;
Ever with me, true and tender, with no one to come between;
That sweet dream I still am dreaming, and I will whate'er befall;
Though the world with love were teaming, still I'd love you best of all.-Cho
