Words And Music by Chas. Graham.

Before the grim old judge they stood, a mother, girl and boy.
The father faced his children and his wife;
He said that she had wronged him, tho' she once had been his joy,
He sought a separation there for life.
The judge said, I will part you, for your hearts are strangers now.
The boy can with his mother always stay,
And if the girl is willing she can with her father go.
The little daughter then began to say:

My home will be with mother, for I'll never have another,
If I should leave her now what would she do;
I love you, dad, sincerely, and my mother just as dearly,
Take mother home, then Tom and I'll go too.

The father tho't of happy days before the babes were born,
Before estrangement, jealousy and pride,
The promises and vows he made upon their wedding morn,
The loving woman who became his bride.
The loyalty of childhood proved that she was faithful still,
Upon her good name there was not a stain;
The veil was torn asunder, and they never will forget
The words that made them man and wife again:-Refrain.
