Lyrics: Skies of love are grey, Shadows on my way, And my heaert is aching For a cheering ray. Dearest, in your eyes, Bid the sun arise, In a smile that's making Life a perfect day. Refrain Only a smile, but for me ‘twill hold, All I am longing to know; Telling that story, the sweetest told, Saying: Dear, I love you so! Bid shadowed skies of my hope grow fair, Send your dear eyes shinging through! Grant me the joy of my heart's one pray'r Only a smile from you!

The derogatory terms, images, and ideas that appear in some of this sheet music are not condoned by the University of Mississippi. They do represent the attitudes of a number of Americans at the times the songs were published. As such, it is hoped that the sheet music in this collection can aid students of music, history, and other disciplines to better understand popular American music and racial stereotypes from the 19th- and early 20th-centuries.
