Words and Music by Chas. Graham.

They went to the school together for years,
When they were girl and boy;
They told one another their hopes and fears,
And shared all their sorrow And joy. I
They vowed that for life they would both be true,
But when they had older grown,
They parted, as sweethearts will often do,
And went on life's journey alone.

Sweethearts at school long years ago, they were but children then,
And little of love can children know when they are twelve and ten;
Fancy will change, years will go by, fate will be sometimes cruel,
But still they remember, with a sigh, when they were sweethearts at school.

To mind they recall one evening in spring,
Down by the old church gate;
They parted through jealousy's pangs and sting,
The same simple story of fate.
In silence they strolled to the homestead door,
He left her in grief and strife;
No fond parting kiss, as they did before,
Once lovers, now strangers for life.-Chorus.
