The twilight shades are falling,

The sun has gone to rest.

In dreams I'm now recalling

The girl I love the best.

How well do I remember

The golden days gone by,

When hearts were true and love was new

To you, my Lou, and I.



In your eyes the light of love was softly beaming,

My dearie, so sweet and cherry.

In your hair a shade of gold was gleaming,

Like moonbeams that shine

Lou Lou I still love you

For he sake of Auld Lang Syne;

And I call you, when I fall to sleep a dreaming,

"That Old Girl of Mine".


The roses, sweet and tender,

Are sad when you are gone.

The stars have lost their splendor,

But rosy is the dawn.

The nightingales are singing,

In summer skies of blue

And while they sing they seem to bring

Sweet memories of you.
