An Old Love Song

on December 19, 2020

It took me a long time to remember this song correctly, but when I finally did I worked hard to write it down for you to sing and remember. I also intend to sing it here if anyone will listen. It has always been my most favorite song.

From this valley they say you are leaving. I will miss your bright eyes and sweat smile. But you know you have broken the sunshine That has followed my passway a while.

Come and sit by my side if you love me. Do not hasten to bid me ado, Just remember the Red River Valley And the sweetheart who loved you so true.

I have promised you darling that never, Will a word from my lips cause you pain. I will stay by your side dear forever, If you only will love me again.

Come and sit by my side if you love me. Do not hasten to bid me ado. Just remember the Red River Vally And the sweetheart who loved you so true.

    About once a year, I get together with a group of friends to have a sing-along. And this song is one of our standards! The melody is so wistful.
