Come Back; I'll Forgive and Forget.
Copyright, 1891, by Frank Tousey.
By Joseph P. Skelly and Monroe H. Rosenfeld.
Sung by Miss Minnie Lee.
Come back, love, all is now forgotten; come back to me, I love but thee;
What matters it if thou hast strayed, my only love thou e'er shalt be;
I'm told thy heart another claims, that other lips thine own have met;
Tho' false thou'st been, I love thee still; come back; I'll forgive and forget.
Come back and I'll forgive thee; come back and I'll forget;
Come back to the heart still longing, come to the one who loves thee yet;
Come back; I could not hate thee; let's meet as once we met;
Come back to the heart that loves thee still; come back; I'll forgive and forget.
Dost thou remember how we once loved; how, day by day, I cheered thy way.
And roses strewed by pathway sweet, and life was bright as flowers in May?
Long years have sped since that sweet time, years bitter fraught with sad regret,
Yea, now, despite all, thou art mine; come back; I'll forgive And forget.- Cho.
