These digital collections have been created from historical documents that reflect the sensibilities of creators in historical times and may contain opinions, language, images, or other content that modern readers may find offensive. The Lear Center and Connecticut College do not endorse the attitudes expressed therein. The Lear Center presents these documents as part of the historical record and recognizes the imperative not to alter it. In some cases, it may be possible to add notes or comments correcting verified errors, but these exceptions will not be applied in a way that changes the appearance of the authentic record.


[Verse 1]
We were so happy, you and I,
Why do we drift apart?
I can’t forget you though I try,
You’re always in my heart,
There’s no one to console me when I’m blue,
There’s no one who can take the place of you.

[Verse 2]
Though you’ve been gone a little while,
To me it seems like years.
I have forgotten how to smile,
My eyes are filled with tears,
Our old time friends all ask for you in vain, I always say that you’ll be back again.

Lonesome and sorry
Because you went away.
Lonesome and sorry, I miss you more each day.
When night time comes stealing I wonder how you;’re feeling, are you lonesome and sorry
The same dear, as me?
