Back to the Only Girl I Love.
Copyright, MDCCCXCVI, by Henry J. Wehman.
Words and Music by Harry B. Millar.
Sad was the hour that we parted, well I remember the day
Wo quarreled, and then, broken-hearted, we each then went our way,
But still she 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
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 far 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; [on their way.
While weeks they have gone since we parted, and months.too, have passed
No doubt she regrets, and the post, too, forgets, and will take me back
[some day.- Chorus.
