I'll Say Farewell Before We Part.
Copyright, 1893, by J. J. Goodwin.
Words and Music by J. Joseph Goodwin.

I loved you once, my love was true,
And I admit with grief And shame
That I have humbly knelt to you
And offered up my love and name.
You've broke the vows you made to me,
For evermore apart we'll dwell:
You've proved me true, how could It be­I'll bid thee now a last farewell.

Farewell, forget your honest lover,
Again I'll never breathe thy name;
Farewell, our happy days are over,
We'll never, never meet again.

Oh, would that all whom you deceive
As bitterly would hate as I;
Oh, would that all whom you believe
Would make you worry, weep and sigh.
True love's bright flame you never knew.
You've only toyed with Cupid's dart;
But though I have loved none but you,
I'll say farewell before we part.- Chorus.

For these gray hairs you are to blame,
This wrinkled brow and haggard face;
Your actions caused me bitter pain,
You've brought me sorrow and disgrace.
I'm thankful now you're not my wife,
I'll try to heal a broken heart;
You've proved me true, you've wrecked my life­I'll say farewell before we part.- Chorus.
