Remember The Red River

'Tis a long time from you I've been waiting
For the words you never would say.
But, today, my last hope it has vanished,
For they tell me you're going away.

From our plains I knew that you'd be going.
I shall miss your bright eyes, your smile.
Far from me you are taking the sunshine
That has made lovely my path for a while.

Often think of the Red River Valley.
Very sad and lonely I'll be.
Do remember the heart you are breaking.
Promise you will remain faithful to me.

When you sail far accross the wide ocean,
May you treasure those bright hours
That we spent on the bank of the River,
In summer evenings 'mong praire flowers.
