Lover’s Quarrel

print

  Jack and May sweethearts were they
They were engaged to be wed
Many a promise Jack made her
Many a love word was said

But they quarreled one night as most true lovers do
She bade him not come any more
She gave him his hat
Jack started to go
But he lingered to say at the door

    Tie up love’s broken cords and let us be sweethearts again
    Darling you know I love you to part would cause me pain
    So let’s forget the past make up and kiss
    Make up and be lovers again

Years rolled by and neither one was wed
And one morning Jack was found dead
She can not tell you why that the tears rolled from her eye
And she goes to the grave every day

Lonesome and sad her sweetheart is not there
His words they still ring in her ear

    Tie up love’s broken cords and let us be sweethearts again
    Darling you know I love you to part would cause me pain
    So let’s forget the past make up and kiss
    Make up and be lovers again
