Dow well I remember, though years now have passed,
When first my dear Mamie I met;
She sat 'neath an arbor, and a more lovely lass
No one ever claimed for his pet.
Her cheeks were like roses, her smile was so sweet,
And her voice was as soft as a dove's;
She was good and true, perfection complete,
My darling, my own true love.
She is the one that I love, she's happy when I'm by her side;
And she's as true as the stars above, she's promised to be my bride.
Oh! she's as true as the stars above, she's promised to be my bride.
Though years have sped by, our love is the same,
The time for her promise is near;
And soon I'll return from over the main,
To her whom I hold so dear.
And then life's journey together we'll start,
I know that her love will not fail.
A happy home, and two loving hearts.
Where peace shall ever prevail.-Refrain.
