Goodbye My Lady Love    (1895)

So you're going away
Because your heart has gone astray
And you promised me
That you would always faithful be

Go to him you love
And be as true as stars above
But your heart will yearn
And then some day you will return

Goodbye, my lady love, farewell my turtle dove
You are the idol and darling of my heart
But someday you will come back to me
And love me tenderly
Goodbye, my lady love, goodbye

When the dew-drops fall
'Tis then your heart, I know, will call
So beware, my dove
Don't trust your life to some false love

But if you must go
Remember, dear, I love you so
Sure as stars do shine
You'll think of when I called you mine

Goodbye, my lady love, farewell my turtle dove
You are the idol and darling of my heart
But someday you will come back to me
And love me tenderly
Goodbye, my lady love, goodbye.
