SWEET MOLLIE MORIN.
Copyright, 1890, by E. Clark Reed.
Written and Composed by E. Clark Reed.
Come, Mollie dear, and listen while around the shadows fail,
The story of my life that's past to you I would recall,
But first your promise give me, for my secret you can guess;
Your heart forever I would keep, now sweetly whisper yes.
Sweet Mollie Morin, true heart. I know,
Your face is like a pleasant dream of long, long ago;
Since first I met you, life to me seems new,
Listen, while I whisper, I love you.
Long years ago, in this same town, a little maiden sweet,
With face so like your own, had won my boyish heart complete,
Yet still another claimed her love and wedded her one night.
Ah! Mollie, 'twas your mother whom I loved in days so bright .-Ref.
