Words and Music by C. A. White. I
Madeline, I think of thee while bitter tears they flow;
I love you as I would be loved and still you bid Be go.
Joy was mine when first we met, oh, angel of my heart.
Oh, Madeline, say 'tis not true that we forever must part!
Ah, Madeline, say 'tis not true that we forever must pint!
Years have passed, I've travelled far, I could not bear the pain;
I would forget that e'er we met, alas, 'tis all in vain!
Sighing winds, o'er land or sea, will ever breathe thy name.
Oh, Madeline, alas, farewell! thy love was cold and vain.
Oh, Madeline, alas, farewell! oh, Madeline, farewell, farewell!
