Published in sheet Music Form, (40 cents,) by Otto Sutro & Co. 207 W. Baltimore Street.
A heart heavy laden with sorrow and pain, Is all that is left me to day To remind me of one who cross'd o'er the main, To a land that is far, far away; As I stand on the rocks, gazing out on the ships, That are winging their way o'er the sea I pray God! the chalice may pass from my lips, For the draught is too bitter for me.
Chorus - Dear Robin I'll be true to thee I'll love none else but you, My heart will ever constant be, Dear Robin, I'll be true Dear Robin, I'll be true to thee, I'll love none else but you, My heart will ever constant be, Dear Robin, dear Robin, I'll be true.
The sun shines as brightly, the birds sing again, The fragrance of flowers fill the air, While alone in my heart there is sorrow and pain, O'er my soul hangs the cloud of despair; Pretty doves spread your pinions arid fly o'er the sea, 'Till the bark of my love you o'ertake, I give him this message - yes, tell him for me To return, or my sad heart will break.
Chorus - Dear Robin, I'll be true to thee, &c.
