Words and Melody by William Johnson.

In a distant land, far, far away, lived a father with two boys,
'Twas the old man's greatest pride to watch their sorrows and their joys,
Two strangers came to them one day from across the ocean blue,
A mother with her pretty child, whose heart was pure and true;
They tarried but a week or two, then sailed away for home,
When the young son to his father said "the world o'er he must roam;"
The old man begged him not to leave, but his pleadings were In vain.
When two years passed his brother left to bring him home again.

Two loving brothers in sunshine,
Two loving brothers in rain,
They grew up In childhood together,
And never caused each other pain,
Two loving brothers together,
And oft their old father would say,
"They'd give up the world, and stand side by side,"
For two loving brothers were they.

Soon that brother found the other with the girl he'd gone to seek,
And he learned that old, old story, where man is strong and woman's weak;
She begged him to redeem the wrong, and to make her his true wife,
When he refused, in her despair she sought to take his life;
In his remorse, while dying, to his brother then be said,
"If you'd repaid the wrong I've done that little girl you'd wed."
Tho, thinking of another love he had left so far away,
He took his brother's hand and hers, and then to him did say:- Chorus.
