Fare Thee Well, My Little Sweetheart.
Copyright. MDCCCXCIV, by Henry J. Wehman.
Words by Lizzie South wick. Music by Geo. J. Southwick.

Fare thee well, my little sweetheart, I'll return again to thee;
Though the years will drag on slowly, faithful unto thee I'll be.
O'er the waters deep and briny of the ever restless sea
Duty tells me I must hasten, fain I would remain with thee.

Good-bye, little blue-eyed darling,
Thoughts of thee will cheer me, Nell;
Love me though I'm absent from thee,
God protect thee, fare thee well.

'Tis a brother I am seeking, years ago he went to roam,
In some distant land he's wand'ring, And I fain would bring him home,
Home again to aged mother-of her anguish none can tell.
Though the parting will be painful, I must leave thee, fare thee well.-Chorus.

Will you still be faithful, Nellie, though long years may pass us by?
Will you watch and wait for Walter? for his coming will you sigh?
If on earth forever parted, we will meet beyond the sky;
Chase away your gloom and sadness, cheer up, little love, good-bye.-Chorus.
