LOVE WILL FIND THE WAY.
Copyright, 1890, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words by J. Cheever Goodwin. Music by Woolson Morse.
There's a saying you have often heard, that since the world begun
No obstacle ever two hearts can sever when love has made them one;
Tho' a stern and angry sire may boil with ire, all in vain will be his "Nay!"
For, as sure as fate, he'll learn too late that love will find the way.
There's never a puzzle in life so hard, but love will find the way;
There's never a prison so tightly barred, but love will find the way;
Tho' mists of doubt may dim the eye, tho' clouds of fear obscure the sky,
Tho' dangers tower mountain high, love will find the way.
You may lock a maiden in a tower, full fourteen stories high;
And guards by the dozen that none can cozen may on her keep their eye,
But, as sure as you are born, before the morn she'll be miles and miles away;
And you'll have to own when the bird has flown that love will find the way.-Cho.
When you're calling of a Sunday eve on the fairest of her sex,
Do not let a trifle affection stifle, or doubt your mind perplex;
If you only find one chair is vacant there, don't get mad and go away-
One chair will do, on a pinch, for two, for love will find the way.-Chorus.
