Stephen Foster, 1861

I remember the days of our youth and love,
When we sat 'neath the green oak tree;
When thy smiles were bright as the skies above,
And thy voice made music unto me.
Chorus:
Never more will come those happy, happy hours,
Whiled away in life's young dawn;
Never more we'll roam
Thro' pleasures' sunny bow'rs,
For our bright, bright summer days are gone.
2. I remember the flow'rs that we cull'd by day,
And the vows that we made by night;
I remember the brook where we loved to stray
In the bygone days of our delight.
Chorus:

3. How we joyed when we met, and griev'd to part,
How we sighed when the night came on;
How I longed for thee in my dreaming heart,
Till the first fair coming of the dawn.
Chorus:
