Love And Wealth

Darling I am all alone in our little mountain home
It’s lonely cold and loveless now inside
For your childish vows of love lasted only one short year
Then you went away to be another’s bride

   You will never know the pain   
   That I felt the day you left
   Should you ever wed again
   Let me wish you love and wealth

For that same old whippoorwill   breaks the silence on the hill
As I stand and gaze upon it’s faded wall
Where your picture used to hang   in a little golden frame
And the vision of your smile I still recall
