We had promised to be wed when we said goodbye that night
While the moon and stars were shining from the sky
For our hearts were full of joy and the future looked so bright
I never thought that we were sayin' our last goodbye
I was only leaving you for just a little while
To find a home where we'd be happy by and by
Then you kissed me with a smile and you said you'll wait for me
I never thought that we were sayin' our last goodbye
It was only one short year till I found a little place
And started back to you to hear your happy sigh
I was thinking only of the smile upon your face
I never thought that we had said our last goodbye
[ steel ]
All the story that was told when I knocked upon your door
Broke my heart in two and how it made me cry
For that told me you had gone and didn't love me anymore
Then I knew that we had said our last goodbye
No one never can be told what the hand of fate will deal
And we do not know the pine that we will die
So don't never be too sure that your love is always real
You'll never know the sadness of our last goodbye
