American Old Time Song Lyrics: 43 I Never Can Forget You Were My Sweetheart
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 43
I NEVER CAN FORGET YOU WERE MY SWEETHEART.
Copyright, 1893, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words and Music by Leona Foutainbleau Jerome.
Sweethearts were we, ever were side by side;
I longed for the day when you would call me bride,
Happy were we, never a thought or a care,
For life seemed to be almost too bright and fair,
Until one day we quarreled and passed each other by;
Yet, I never can forget that we were sweethearts, you and I.
We were sweethearts, loving and fond and true,
Once you loved me and I loved you;
Sweethearts, sweethearts, drifted go far apart,
Yet I never can forget you were my sweetheart.
Sweethearts were we, cloudless our sky above,
And all seemed to smile with gladness on our love;
Life, like a dream, seemed to be passing by.
And yet seemed too real to fade away and die.
'Tis long since last we parted, and though I often try,
Yet, I never can forget that we were sweethearts, you and I.-Chorus.
