Lyrics: First verse The roses each one, met with the sun, Sweetheart, when I met you, The sunshine had fled, The roses were dead, Sweetheart, when I lost you. Chorus I lost the sunshine and roses, I lost the heavens of blue I lost the beautiful rainbow, I lost the morning dew; I lost the angel who gave me Summer, the whole winter through, I lost the gladness that turned into sadness, When I lost you. Second verse The birds ceased their song, right turned to wrong, Sweetheart, when I lost you, A day turned to years, The world seem'd in tears, Sweetheart, when I lost you. (Chorus)

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.
