I'LL BE TRUE TO THE ONE THAT I LOVE
[A] Come and kiss me goodbye ere you [E7] leave me,
Come and sit by my side one more [A] time,
Tho your love may belong to a- [E7] nother,
In my heart you'll always be [A] mine.
I re- [D] member the day, when the [A] parson did say,
You be- [E7] long to the one you love [A] best,
And it [D] broke my poor heart, when you [A] said we must part,
Now the [E7] Angels can tell you the [A] rest.
You may leave me behind forever,
They may lay me beneath the cold clay,
But remember my darlin' you'll never,
Find a pal like you're leavin' today.
Here's your ring on my hand, just a plain golden band,
May I keep it as a token of love,
And as years come and go, 'till my hair's white as snow,
I'll be true to the one that I love.
