Lovers Return

This song is by The Carter Family and appears on the album The Carter Family Volume 1 - 1927-1934 (2002).

And so you have come back to me
And say the old love's growing yet
You've tried through all these weary years
You've tried too vainly to forget

No, no, I cannot take your hand
God never gives us back our youth
The loving heart you slighted then
Was yours, my friend, in perfect truth

Farewell, farewell now we must part
You never meant to do me wrong
God sent this anguish to my heart
To teach me to be brave and strong

No, no, I cannot take your hand
God never gives us back our youth
The loving heart you slighted then
Was yours, my friend, in perfect truth

Farewell, I think I love you yet
As friend to friend, God bless you, dear
And guide you through these weary years
To where the skies are always clear

No, no, I cannot take your hand
God never gives us back our youth
The loving heart you slighted then
Was yours, my friend, in perfect truth
