Down At The End Of Memory Lane

Down at the end of Memory lane
Many have walked it in gladness
I was the one to walk it last
I walked it alone in sadness

I received a letter from my love
Opened it and this is what it said
I am sorry if I hurt you but now it is too late
For another man my darling I have wed

I remember her sweet smiling face
And her little freckled nose
And her golden hair hanging down her back
Tied with a big blue ribbon bow

We were childhood chums together there
I loved her with all my heart and soul
But she married another without a thought or care
And she left me in this world alone and cold

You have heard of the weeping willow
Of that weeping willow tree
And when I die I want you to bury me
Beneath that weeping willow tree

When I’m dead and buried love
Never no more in this world to see
There is one request grant me darling
Won’t you see that my grave is kept clean
