I'm thinking tonight
Of the o-old rustic bridge
That bends o'er the murmuri-ing stream
It was there Maggie dear
With our hearts full of cheer
We strayed 'neath the moo-oon's gentle beam

'Twas there I first met you
The light in your eyes
Awoke in my heart a sweet thrill
Though now far away
Still my thoughts fondly stray
To the old rustic bri-idge by the mill

Beneath it a stream gently rippled
Around it the bir-irds loved to trill
Though now far away
Still my thoughts fondly stray
To the old rustic bri-idge by the mill

I keep in my memory
Our love of the past
With me it's as bright as of old
For deep in my heart
It was planted to last
In absence it ne-ever grows cold

I think of you darlin'
When lonely at night
And when all is pea-eaceful and still
My heart wanders back
In a dream of delight
To the old rustic bri-idge by the mill

Beneath it a stream gently rippled
Around it the bir-irds loved to trill
Though now far away
Still my thoughts fondly stray
To the old rustic bri-idge by the mill
