Words by M. J. Cavanagh. Music by Isidor Witmark

Many years ago a seaman and a maid
Beside a moss-grown gateway stood And lender words betrayed;
The pain that gives to fond hearts leal and true,
"Forget me not" she cries while tears bedim her eyes of blue.

Jack won't forget you, Jack won't forget you.
His heart will be loyal and true;
Jack won't forget you, should doubts, love, beset you,
Remember Jack, till he comes back, will think of you.

Weary years have fled, and faded now the eyes
That once with life and hope and love were bright as Summer skies;
still watches she and waits by the crumbling gate each day.
And until life and all is o'er she'll wait and watch always. -Chorus.
