Red River Valley

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 path for awhile.

Come and sit by my side if you love me,
Do not hasten to bid me adieu,
But remember the Red River Valley,
And the girl that has loved only you.

Won't you think of this valley you're leaving?
Oh, how lonely and sad it will be,
Oh, and think of the dear heart you're breaking,
And the grief that you're causing me.


From this valley they say you are going,
When you go, may your true love go, too?
Would you leave her behind unprotected?
When she loves no other but you?


I have promised you, darling, that never
Will a word from my lips cause you pain;
And my life, it will be yours forever
If you only will love me again.
