THE OLD CHURCH CHOIR.
Copyright, 1895, by Thos. H. Murray,
Words and Music by Thos. H. Murray.

At an old-fashioned church on the hillside,
In a country town not far away;
It was there I met Jennie, my sweetheart-
The organ she sweetly did play;
I've pictured as we sang together,
How fondly I did her admire;
And my heart seemed to say she'll be mine some day.
As we sang in the old church choir.

Chorus.
As we sang in the old church choir,
At the church with the old oak spire,
There were hearts young and gay,
And folks old and gray,
That sang In the old church choir;
There were hearts young and gay,
And folks old and gray,
That sang in the old church choir.

It is long years ago, dear old sweetheart,
Since we two fond lovers became;
You remember how sad was the parting,
Your mother alone was to blame;
She wished you to marry another-
Not love, it was wealth she'd aspire:
I forgive the past now, you've kept our pledge now,
Since we sang in the old church choir.-Chorus.

I'll be back soon again, dear old sweetheart,
And to call you forever my queen,
At the old-fashioned church on the hillside,
As bridegroom and bride we'll be seen;
There's nothing that can come between us,
Of wealth I've enough to retire;
So together through life, with sweetheart as wife,
We can sing In the old church choir.- Chorus.
