I Loved You Better than You Knew.
Copyright. 1893. by Chas. W. Hold.
Worda and Music by Johnnie Carroll.

Our hands are clasped, the last forever,
Perhaps we'll never meet again;
I loved you as I could none other;
This parting fills my heart with pain;
You ask, and freely I forgive you,
The happy past I must forget;
And though I wander on in sorrow,
I hope that you'll be happy yet.

As through this weary world I wander,
My thoughts alone will be of you;
in mem'ry I will see you ever:
I loved you better than you knew.

Perhaps, when I have gone forever,
You'll sometimes sit and think of me,
And wonder if I'm dead or living;
Perchance I'll think the same of thee;
And when your friends have all departed,
The friends you thought were tried and true,
Remember one you left heart-broken
Had loved you better than you knew.-Chorus
