THE GIRL WHO LEFT A HAPPY HOME FOR ME.
Copyright, 1891, by Spaulding & Gray.
Words and Music by Gussie L Davis.

Two laughing eyes will greet me when the toils of day are done,
Of the girl who left a happy home for me;
With a kiss I know she'll greet me at the setting of the sun,
The girl who left a happy home for me;
Beside the gate she's waiting, and supper's waiting, too;
Her little hands alone prepared the tea;
Life to me's a dream of pleasure, for her love was tried and true,
The girl who left a happy home for me.

Chorus.
No king upon his throne, no love the world has known,
No happiness on earth could ever be
As sacred and divine as that little love of mine.
The girl who left a happy home for me.

She left her wealthy parents and gave me her heart and hand,
The girl who left a happy home for me;
Changed a mansion for a cottage, naught but love there to command,
The girl who left a happy home for me:
The rich folks that once knew her now coldly pass her by-
Her name they dropped from their society:
We are happy in a cottage, just this little wife and I,
Site's the girl who left a happy home for me.- Chorus.
