From this valley
They say you are going,
I shall miss your sweet face
And your smile,
For they say
You are taking the sunshine
That brightens our pathway a while.
Come and sit by my side if you love me,
Do not haste to bid me adieu,
But remember the Red River Valley,
And the girl that has loved you so true.
Won' t you think of the valley you' re leaving?
Oh how lonely, how sad it will be,
O think of the fond heart you're breaking
And the grief you are causing.
I have promised you, darling,
That never will a word from my lips cause you pain;
And my life, it will be yours forever
If you only will love me again.
