   Song Index

From this valley they say you are going.
We will miss your bright eyes and sweet smile.
For they say you are taking the sunshine
That brightens our pathway awhile.

Chorus:
Come and sit by my side if you love me.
Do not hasten to bid me adieu.
But reember the Red River valley,
And the girl that has loved you so true.

Chorus

As you go to your home by the ocean,
May you never for-get those sweet hours
That we spent in the Red River valley
Love that was ours 'mid the flow'rs.

Chorus

I've been thinking a long time, my darling,
Of the sweet words you never would say,
Now, alas, must my fond hopes all vanish?
For they say you are going away.

Chorus

Won't you think of the valley you're leaving,
Oh, how lonely and sad it will be,
Just think of the fond heart you're breaking,
And the grief you are causing to me.
