Foolish Pride

Once I had a true love sweeter than the stars above
And I loved her with all my heart
It brought tears in her eyes when I told her goodbye
All because of my fool foolish pride

Oh foolish pride I can’t live with you
For you have driven away my darling
You have broken her heart now you’re keeping us apart
Foolish pride I’ll never forgive you

We would sit all alone she would talk of our home
And of days when she’d be my own wife
So softly she would say when is our wedding day
I’m so happy my darling I could cry
