Lyrics: Though time may let us sometimes forget, Until, with but a sigh, The mem'ries of a passionate love Turn ashen cold and die, For me there still can be but you! Come weal or woe, My love is true! Ah! dear one, if you only knew My heart, when you're away! When you're away, dear, how weary the lonesome hours! Sunshine seems gray, dear! The fragrance has left the flow'rs! Ever I hear you, in seeming, Whisp'ring soft love words to me! Ah! If I knew ‘twere but dreaming! Ne'er to be! Then when you're near me, There's naught that I strive to do, Save to endear me more fondly, my love, to you! Never again let us part, dear! I die without you, mine own! Hold me again to your heart! I love you alone! Love you mine own! Love you alone!

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.
