We Parted by the River Side.

We parted by the river side, the moon looked down on you and me,
The stars put on a look of pride, the river murmured to the sea;
The dew drops kissed the blushing rose, the gentle winds did sigh;
One word broke nature's sweet repose, that sad word was, good-bye.

oh! tell me that you love me yet-for, oh! the parting gives me pain-
Say, tell me that you'll not forget, for we may never meet again.

We parted by the river side, a tear-drop trembled on your cheek,
In vain to tell my love I tried, my heart was sad I could not speak-
I promised that I would be true, so long as I would live:
The parting kiss I gave to you, was all I had to give.- Chorus.

We parted by the river side, and I have roamed a distant clime.
My heart has not forgot its pride, for I have loved you all the time,
And I am faithful to you still, while I believe you true;
Afar or near let come what will, I'll love you, you, only you.- Chorus.
