Lover’s Farewell (Alvin Pleasant Carter)

Rendition of A. P. D. C.-song


(Lightly revised A.P. Carter)

We have met and we have parted,
we have spoke our last goodbye
You have proved to me false-hearted
You may never ever lie

You have wrecked the heart I cherish
You have done me day by day
You were false, but I forgive you
To forget, I cannot say


On the riverbank I’ll loiter
’till I see your face once more,
then I flunsh beneath the water
and I land on some foreign shore
Among the trees and bushes
where the dark green willow wave
In the cold and silent rushes
there you’ll find my lonely grave
