Words and Music by Walter P. Keen.

A mother wept the day before her daughter was to wed;
She gazed upon the bridal robes And anxiously she said:
"To-morrow you'll be gone from me, but ere you go away
I pray you to remember well the parting words I say:

"You may return to me: whate'er your lot may be,
Where'er you roam, you'll know at home a welcome waits for thee.
Love's vowe, however free, are naught but mystery;
So, rich or poor, my girl, be sure you may return to me.

"The vows that lovers make before the wedding often change;
That, happened in your father's case, tho' you may think It strange;
He fled from me with a fairer face soon after you were born.
And that is why I think it right my only child to warn "-Refrain.
