Lyrics: First verse Tell me sweet heart why this sighing Tell me why this bitter tear Each cloud has its silver lining Brighter days my bring good cheer In the night the darkest hours Come be fore the break of day Think my darling of the sunshine When the clouds have passed away. Chorus Do not forget the old days, The days of long ago, Do not forget The Summer breeze that whispered soft and low Telling as sweet a story As the coo of the tender dove Do not forget the olden days Do not forget my love. Second verse When the night is dark and stormy When the rain drops patter down Sweetheart do not be so gloomy Do not wear a down cast frown Days may come and days may go dear, But our love remains the same Let this be a light to guide us Let me sing you once a gain. (Chorus)
