Little Darling, Now Good-Bye.
Copyright, 1886, by J. W. Wood.
Composed by J. W. Wood. Sung by George Brunton.
Little darling, now good-bye, 'tis sad, but we must part;
I'm going far away from thee, to leave thy loving heart.
Across the sea I go to roam, far from the loving ones at homeYou'll think of me where'er I stray, in distant lands far, far away.
You'll think of me when I'm away in distant lands, where'er I stray;
Come back to thee, I'll come to thee, from distant lands beyond the sea.
Little darling, now good-bye, to leave it gives me pain.
But dry your tear-drops, weep no more, true love will bring me back again.
For I will he to thee, my love, true as the stars that shine above-
On some bright day I will return, for you my heart will ever yearn.-Chorus.
Little darling, now good-bye-no tongue can ever tell
How hard it Is to speak those words-the parting words that say farewell;
But, with your love, I'll banish care-that day will dawn, both bright and fair,
When you and I, our trouble o'er, shall meet again to part no more.-Chorus.
