FRIENDS OF OTHER DAYS.
Copyright, 1892, by Willis Woodward & Co..
Words and Music by Julian Jordan.
To the friends of other days often mem'ry turns;
For the friends of other days how the heart e'er yearns;
Friends we loved in childhood's happy time, friends of our youth's bright day;
Oft ye come in fancy's dream, though so far away!
Oft, oft ye come in fancy's dream, though so far away!
In this changing, fleeting life, in this world of pain,
Though we meet not in the strife, nevermore again!
Unforgotten are the friends of yore, long, long as mem'ry stays;
In my heart a place you'll hold, friends of other days;
Here in my heart a place you'll hold, friends of other days
Unforgotten through the drift of years, friends of other days!
