Sweetheart, I'll Return to Thee.
Copyright, 1893, by The S. Brainard's Sons Co.
Words and Music by M. Le Roy.
Stars were shining in the sky when I kissed my love good-bye,
Eyes that look'd my heart away, I'll return, return and stay;
I'll never leave thee, love, again, never more will cause thee pain,
Oh, how sad it was to part from thee, darling of my heart.
Sweetheart, I'll return to thee,
Ever true, sweetheart, I'll be;
Oh, how sad it was to part
From thee, darling of my heart.
Sweetheart, I'll return again,
Never more will cause thee pain;
Faithful I'll ever be, faithful and true to thee,
Darling, sweetheart, I'll come back to thee.
Sweetheart, sweetheart, sigh no more, dry thy tears, be as of yore,
Let thy poor heart now rejoice, for I hear thy soft, sweet voice
Culling me so tenderly, far across the deep blue sea;
Once more, love, I feel, I know all thou wert long, long ago.-Refrain.
Wafted was thy cry to me, by the zephyrs o'er the lea,
lb-art to heart and soul to soul, sweetheart, under love's control,
We shall soon united be throughout all eternity;
Joy we then shall only trace in the folds of love's embrace.- Refrain
