Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 54
COME BACK, SWEETHEART.
Copyright, 1897, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words and Music by Safford Waters.
The stars are shining clear and bright,
As on the eve when last we purted;
I wonder me you gay to-night,
For I am sad and lonely-hearted,
All if you still recall the day,
The happy day our vows were plighted;
And how you whispered, "come what may.
Our hearts, our lives shall be united!"
Cone back, sweetheart, come back to me,
Come back again and leave me never;
Come back to one Who dreams of thee,
And who will dream of thee forever.
Forgive that I have caused you pain.
Who never yet have ceased, love, to regret thee.
I may not see thy face again.
But still I never can forget thee.
Sometimes I think you never knew
The reason a by I said "Good-bye, dear; "
But oh, sweetheart, 'twas all for you,
For you And for the by and by, dear;
But now the clouds have c eared away,
And shines again the light of Heaven;
For us there dawns another day,
When all, at last, shall be forgiven.-Refrain.
