AFTER I’M GONE

AFTER I’M GONE

Will you call me
Your one and only
In my arms fall
When you are lonely?
Will the bells toll
For our union
Two bands of gold
Ne’er to be undone?

CHORUS
How long, how long
How long will you wait after I’m
How long, how long
How long will you wait after I’m gone?

Will you bury
Me in the flowers
Mourn your married
All of the hours?

Will you find me
In another
Oft’ reminding
We were once lovers?

CHORUS

BRIDGE

Darling,
Ever by shadows
Say you’ll be waiting
Now and the morrow
Darling,
Offer your true vow
Ever be faithful
‘Til every tree bows

How long, how long
How long will you wait?
After I’m gone
After I’m…
