Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 48
JENNY AND I.
Copyright, 1895, by F. J. Tierney.
Written and Composed by Felix McGlennon.
In the golden days gone by we were lovers, you and I,
And though clouds bedimmed the way, we'd be true we vowed for aye.
Naught could part us, naught divide, we were trusted, true and tried;
For the future how we planned, as we'd ramble band-in-hand.
Jenny and I, Jenny and I, boy and girl together,
Toddling along to the same old school, heedless of the weather:
Older we grew, still we were true, true to each other through life;
Jenny and I, Jenny and I soon will be husband and wife.
How we'd linger by the stream, how we'd bask in love's young dream.
As we watched the waters glide, you'd cling closer to my side.
We thought not of worldly care, we'd no sorrow-love was there,
Building castles bright as gold, as you in my arms I'd fold.- Chorus.
As we in the past have been in the future we'll be seen.
Ever faithful, ever true, though the skies are dark or blue:
Sailing down life's peaceful tide, in each other we'll confide.
Faithful ever on through life, faithful husband, loving wife - Chorus.
