If He's Gone Let Him Go, God Bless Him

Cat. #0746 (MFH #293) - As sung by Ollie Gilbert, Mountain View, Arkansas on May 26, 1969

CHORUS:
If he's gone let 'im go, God bless 'im
Wherever he may be
He may roam this wide world over
He'll find no other like me

VERSE 1
He used to be my sweetheart
An' sit right by my side
But now he's gone an' left me
A many, many time I've cried

VERSE 2
They say, he loved another
Wherever he may be
I hope they'll both live happy
An' never think of me

VERSE 3
There's many of a change in a season
There's many of a change in th sea
There's many of a change in a heart, love
But you find no change in me

VERSE 4
Some tells me to forget him
Forget him, I can-not
For th name of my true lover
Is written upon my heart
