Broken Vows

Cat. #0016 (MFH #24) - As sung by Mr. Frank Pool, Fayetteville, Arkansas on January 6, 1958

This night we part forever
Your nothing more to me
Kindly, I will act and suffer
An' bind my heart, to thee
Not a single nerve will quiver
When I bid you th last adieu
Tho' it breaks my heart forever
Not a tear will I shed for you

Take back those vows you have plotted
Take back without regret
For the heart that you once, so slighted
Thinks only to forget
An' when you find you another
To her I pray you'll be true
And may God bless your wedding
And forever smile on you

Farewell, farewell, mon-scherries
Thoughts never to break sighs
I have loved you once most dearly
But now I pass you by
Although I am forsaken
Well, I never can forget
How happy I've been with you
Well, I wished we never had met
