W:Such griev-ous thoughts my heart do fill Since parting with my Sally. W:I seek no more the bright and gay, For each but does remind me W:How swift the hours did pass away With the girl I've left behind me. W: W:2 W:Oh, ne'er shall I forget the night; The stars were bright above me, W:And gently lent their silvery light, When first she vowed to love me. W:But now I 'm bound for Brighton Camp. Kind heaven, then, to guide me, W:And send me safely back again To the girl I've left behind me. W: W:3 W:Her golden hair, in ringlets fair, Her eyes like diamonds shining, W:Her slender waist with carriage chaste, May leave the swans repining. W:Ye gods above, oh hear my prayer To my beauteous fair to bind me W:And send me safely back again To the girl I've left behind me. W: W:4 W:The bee shall honey taste no more, The dove become a ranger, W:The falling waters cease to roar, 'Ere I shall seek to change her. W:The vows we registered above, Shall ever cheer and bind me, W:In constancy to her I love, The girl I left behind me. % % % % % % After The Campfire Song Book % My Own Song Book % The Song And The Story % Songs From Hazzards Huzzah % % % % %]
