Words and Music by Will H. Fox

Once more I read your letters sweet;
How many times, love, have I done the same?
For me 'tis joy those dear words to repeat;
They ease a wounded heart near broke in twain.
I love no one in life but you, think of the days gone by.
First sweetheart that I ever knew, for thee alone I sigh;
It might have been, it might have been,
Had i but known what I know now.

Fond mem'ry takes me back once more.
Beneath the oak that stood down in the lane;
The village church, when services were o'er,
The sandy beach on which I wrote your name.
The love of youth remains as true; I want you ever near.
First sweetheart that I ever knew, my lonely life to cheer;
It might have been, it might have been,
And yet the fates keep us apart;
It might have been, it might have been,
Had I but known your loving heart.
