Goodbye

Farewell, farewell is a lonely sound
And always brings a sigh,
But give to me that better world
That comes from the heart, goodbye.

Chorus
Farewell, farewell we hear it oft
With a tear, perhaps with a sigh.
But the heart feels most
When the lips move not
And the eyes speak a gentle goodbye.

Farewell, farewell is never heard when
The tear is in the Mother's eye
Adieu, adieu, she speaks it not
But, my child, goodbye, goodbye.
But, my child, goodbye, goodbye.

Chorus

Farewell, farewell may do for the gay
When pleasures throng is nigh
But give to me when loved ones part
That sweet old word, goodbye,-
That sweet old word, goodbye.
