Don't Forget Me Little Darling

Cat. #0570 (MFH #152) - As sung by Mrs. Haden Robinson, Fayetteville, Arkansas on November 26, 1960

VERSE 1
Don't forget me, little darling
When from you I'm fer away
Only trust me, little darling
For I think of you each day

VERSE 2
You may meet with fairer faces
They will tell you, I'm not true
Don't believe them, little darling
No one loves you like I do

VERSE 3
When your in th foreign country
On a pillow made of stone
You'll remember then, my darling
Truest words to you've been told

VERSE 4
Farewell darling, farewell to you
Farewell, farewell, we must say
Before th dawning of th morning
I'll be many miles away

VERSE 5
Don't forget me little darling
Don't forget our happy past
Just be patient, little darling
We will surely wed at last
