Gold Watch and Chain
Written by A. P. Carter




Darling, how can I stay here without you,
I have nothing to cheer my poor heart,
This old world would seem sad, love, without you,
Tell me now that we're never to part.


I will pawn you my gold watch and chain, love,
I will pawn you my gold diamond ring,
I will pawn you this heart in my bosom,
Only say that you'll love me again.


Take back all the gifts you have given,
But a ring and a lock of your hair,
And a card with your picture upon it,
It's a face that is false, but is fair.


Tell me why is it that you don't love me,
Tell me why that your smile is not bright,
Tell me why you have grown so cold-hearted,
Is there no kiss for me, love, tonight?


Oh, the white rose that blooms in the garden,
It grows with the love of my heart ,
It broke through on the day that I met you ,
It will die on the day that we part.
