They were standing in the moonlight when he kissed his love goodbye
He had broken engagement and she asked the reason why
I have someone else my darling and she mean the world to me
That is why I'm asking of you dear leave me here and set me free
The she whispered oh so sadly as the tears they filled her eyes
And his heart was full of pity for he took her by surprise
[ guitar ]
If it's true you love another better dear than you love me
Dear I want you to be happy all forever set you free
Though you leave me for another I hope we'll meet again someday
In that far up home up yonder there our love will end this way
