WE MAY BOTH BE HAPPY YET.
Copyright, 1895, by Joe. Morris.
Words and Music by Harry S. Miller.
The sails are set, the ship waits at the quay,
Soon my love I'll be upon the sea,
And when I'm gone across the ocean deep,
Will you, darling, ever then your promise keep;
For I will return to you, my love, again
When the flowers And springtime have come;
Then cheer up, my sweetheart; do not weep And sigh,
We may both be happy when the springtime draws nigh.
Yes, we may both be happy yet, darling you and I:
We may both be happy when the spring draws nigh;
One more kiss and then adieu-darling, promise you'll be true,
And we may both be happy when the spring draws nigh.
To-morrow day I'll sail the ocean blue,
Though, my love, 'tis hard to part with you;
And when I'm gone across the deep blue sea,
Will you always think of Jack when on the sea;
For many a dark and stormy night may blow
Ere our ship is homeward bound, you know:
So cheer up, my sweetheart; do not weep and sigh,
We may both be happy when the springtime draws nigh.- Chorus.
