You've gone so far a-way my darling,
|C / / / |/ / / / |
Each time I think of you I cry,
|/ / / / |G / / / |
I'll press your picture to my bosom,
G / D / |G / / / |
Then I'll feel that you're close by.
The years have passed you've not returned dear,
Now they say that you have died,
But your soul will live forever,
Now I know you'll be close by.
I saw you last while you were leaving,
The tears from you I tried to hide,
You took me in your arms and said dear,
Your memory I keep close by.
They've buried you in a lonely graveyard,
And a spot they've left beside,
Now we'll sleep 'til Jesus calls us,
So that we can be close by.
