Cat. #1119 (MFH #42) - As sung by Ollie Gilbert, Mountain View, Arkansas on April 9, 1970
From this valley they say you're are goin'
I will miss your bright eyes an' sweeet smile
For they say you are takin' th sunshine
That will brighten my pathway awhile
Come an' set by my side, little darlin'
Do not hasten to bid me adieu
But remember th Red River valley
An' th girl that loved you so true
Do you think of th valley you leavin'
O, how lonely an' sad it will be
O, think of the heart you are breaking
An' th grief you are causing me to see
When you go to your home, by th ocean
May you never forget those sweet hours
That we spent in th Red River valley
An' th love we exchanged mid th flowers
