Back to the Only Girl I Love.

Sad was the hour that we parted, well I remember the day
We quarreled, and then, broken-hearted, we each then went our way,
But still the must think of me sometimes, She does not forget me, I pray;
Our paths though apart, yet I feel in my heart she will take me back some day.
Back to the only girl I love, back to the one I think most of:
Happy I'd be If I only could see my dear Little, sweet little loved one.
Even the stars all seem to say, there'll come a time not far away.
So be of light heart, tho' now for apart, she'll take you back some day.
Too soon our dream it was broken-oh, how my heart It did pain,
And each tender, sweet Little token she sent me back again;
While weeks they have gone since we parted, and months, too, have passed on their way,
No doubt she regrets, and the past, too, forgets, and will take me back some day.
