My Sweetheart of Long Ago.
Copyright, 1894. by Herbert H. Taylor.
Words and Music by Herbert H. Taylor.

It was many years ago that I loved a charming girl,
She had merry laughing eyes of bonnie blue,
With a handsome dimpled face and the daintiest teeth of pearl,
And a wealth of lovely hair of golden hue.
There were girls whose faces in my mind remain,
But my heart Is true to her, I know,
And I'd give the world if I could only see again
My little sweetheart that I loved long ago.

Brightest visions now recall the girl I loved so well,
And the spot where water-lilies grow:
Dreams reveal again to me the little mossy dell
Where I met my sweetheart In the long ago.

In the lull of busy strife I can hear the glad refrain
Of a ballad that my darling one day sung:
The boat was drawn in shelter from the sudden summer rain,
And her sweet voice thro' the fragrant cedars rang.
Merry days now past are fraught with wild regret,
For I loved the little maid, I know;
Other friends have cheered me, yet I never can forget
My little sweetheart that I loved long ago.-Chorus.
