JUST ANOTHER BROKEN HEART.
Copyright, 1897. by Albert E. Fowler.
Words and Music by Albert E. Fowler.
A lad and lass one Winter's night were going to be wed.
He promised he would love her all through life.
He told her they would happy be in a home for two,
If she would cling to him thro' storm and strife.
The guests were in the parlor, the minister was there,
The station filled with friends to see them start:
But the lad he never came for her to take his name,
So this sweet lass now has a broken heart.
Just another broken heart, just a blighted life,
Left alone to battle with life's turmoil and its strife.
Hope all dead, loved one fled, makes the tear-drop start.
This is just another, just another broken heart.
He met her at her country home just three short years ago,
He promised he would be her guiding star;
He whispered tales of endless bliss in her willing ear,
She thought that naught their happiness could mar,
But alas for this sweet lassie, his love was only sham,
Which made the roses from her cheeks depart;
In her home she sits in tears, thinking of the by-gone years,
Before this laddie broke her happy heart.- chorus.
