That Happy Night

Many years now have passed since I saw my darling last
But she waits alone there just for me
I’ll be going back some day and I never more will stray
From that girl who stood by me

   I’ve about forgot the tune and the West Virginia moon
   But the North Carolina moon is just as bright
   I’ll n’er forget the time you promised to be mine
   The moon was shining down that happy night

When I left her all alone in our little mountain home
I never thought of the day I’d return
Now I’m coming back to you love I know you’ve been true
What a price I’ve paid to live and learn
