Words and Music by James T. Powers,

Young John and Jane were lovers, and they parted at the gate;
He turned away with flashing eyes-it was the lovers' fate:
For two long years he stayed away, her heart was nearly broke;
She couldn't stand it longer, so she wrote to him this note:

For the old love's sake return to me, for the old love's sake come back;
A loving heart is breaking to see her darling Jack:
They said that I was false to you, it fills my soul with pain;
When you know all, my darling one, you will return again.

The day her letter came to him, he sent one just the same;
He said to her, "My darling one, I'm coming back again;
My little one," his letter read, "I believe that you are true!"
Two loving hearts they read each others' letters through and through.- Chorus.

Two loving hearts are wedded now, their names are John and Jane;
Though silver lining deck their brow, they're lovers just the same;
And oftentimes they speak about their quarrel at the gate;
And the little note that Johnnie wrote it scaled the lovers' fate.- Chorus.
