SOMETIMES(My Little Sweetheart She'll Be Always)
Copyright, 1894, by Frank Hauling.
Written and Composed by Chas. Brahman.
Arranged by William Loraine.
Sometimes at night I sit alone and ponder;
Mem'ry goes back thro' the vista of the past-
Dreaming at will, at heart I often wonder,
Does some one know how I love her to the last?
Sometimes I dream that she still wanders thro' the heather,
Down by the river, where the moonlight plays;
Though she, perhaps, forgets the hours we spent together-
My little sweetheart she will be always.
Sometimes I think of the fair, sweet face I knew in the long ago,
With bonnie brown eyes and a form of grace, and good little heart, I know;
Sometimes I think that she loved me then, in those olden, golden days;
'Tis the story of first love over again-my little sweetheart she'll be always.
Sometimes I wish we ne'er had met each other
Down by the stream, where we watched the moonlight play-
Sometimes I hope she never loved another-
Longing the while that we meet again some day;
Eyes that were bright may then be dim with age "and sorrow;
Hearts that were true, remember what love says:
Tho' we should part for years or meet again to-morrow-
My little sweetheart she will be always.-Refrain.
