Words and Music by Gussie L. Davis.

A time-worn letter, written some forty years or more;
An old-time faded photo beside it on the floor;
An old man sits by dreaming, in sadness and regret,
Of tokens of his sweetheart, the girl he did not get.

Once, all his life was sunshine, then he was bright and gay;
Bright was the future before bun. until his love ran away;
Then all his reason bereft him, with her he had to part;
And all that mem'ry left him was tears and a broken heart.

'Tis but a simple story, repeated o'er each day;
His brother won his sweetheart, and then they went away;
The old man's heart was broken, but still he loves her yet;
Be treasures every token from the girl he did not get. - Chorus.
