And so you have come back to me and say the old loves growing yet
You've tried through all these weary years you've tried too vainly to forget
Oh no I cannot take your hand God never gives is back our youth
The loving heart you slighted then was yours my friend in perfect truth
[ mandolin ]
Come close and let me see your face your raven hair is tinged with snow
Oh yes it is the same dear face I loved so many years ago
Oh no I cannot take your hand...
[ guitar ]
Farewell I think I love you yet as friend to friend God bless you dear
And guide you through these weary years to where the skies are always clear
Oh no I cannot take your hand...
[ fiddle ]
Oh no I cannot take your hand...
