Annie My Own Love

Line
Melody - Stephen Foster, 1853

Charles Shiras, 1853

There's a wound in my spirit,
No balm can e'er heal;
In my sould is a sorrow,
No voice can reveal.
And deeper the furrows
Will sink on my brow,
|: For Annie, my own love,
Is gone from me now. :|
2. Like the moon to the twilight
She came to my heart,
And fondly she told me
We never should part;
By Death, unrelenting,
She's freed from her vow,
|: And Annie, my own love,
Is gone from me now. :|
3. Like the night when the moonbeam
Is gone from the sky,
In the gloom of my sorrow
Heart-broken I lie:
Oh! seek not to sooth me,
To earth let me bow,
|: For Annie, my own love,
Is gone from me now. :|
