Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 33
RECALL THAT SAD GOOD-BYE.
Copyright, 1890, by Willis Woodward & Co.
Words and Music by Barney Fagan.
Have I not been true to you, my darling?
Have I not kept sacred every vow?
Tell me where my love has ever falter'd.
And why you turn your back upon me now?
Can it be you've banished me forever?
Cast me from your heart without a sigh?
Have I not been kind, tell me, love, the fault you find,
Recall that sad good-bye.
Recall that sad good-bye, recall that sad good-bye;
Have I not been kind, tell me, love, the fault you find, recall that sad good-bye.
Days ago you made my life so happy,
Your constancy I madly did admire;
I thought you gave me your sincere affection,
The sunshine of your smiles was my desire;
Our home a little paradise of comfort,
The baby that resembled you and I,
So innocent and fair, will be without a mother's care,
Recall that sad good-bye.-Chorus.
