THE SOLDIER'S BRIDE(Only a Sad, Sweet Memory)
Copyright, 1897, by N. K. flyers.

She was a soldier's sweetheart, pure as the morning dew.
Home from the war to wed her, hastened the lover true.
Back to the field of conflict, duty bade him go;
Kissing his bride, he whispered, "Soldiers must fight, you know:"

Only a sad, sweet memory, darling, of bygone years.
Only a dream of you, dear, kissing away my tears; I light?
"A soldier's bride should not weep," you said, but how can my heart be
I've only a sad, sweet memory, darling, of you tonight.

Then came a tender message, saying his love was true.
Borne by a wounded comrade, these were his words to you,
"For our dear flag and freedom, love, I give my life.
Shed not a tear, remember you are a soldier's wife." - Refrain.
