I Will Love That Girl Forever

by Shorty Dawkins

From the day I first met that girl,
Saw her smile, and heard her laughing.
With her golden hair blowing in the air,
And her eyes, so kind and inviting,
I knew I would ever love her.

In my dreams, I still see her face,
And I hold her hand in my hand,
Take her in my arms,
Keep her from all harm,
Hear her voice,
That still makes me quiver,
I will love that girl forever.

How could I ever turn away?
Turn my back and leave her standing.
As I sit alone, in my empty home,
While my life goes by as I'm dreaming.
I will love that girl forever.

Days go by, and the years they pass,
Only memories are left me.
Of a girl I knew,
With her eyes of blue,
Telling me she'd love me forever,
Yes, I'll love that girl forever.

All the dreams we once shared are gone,
Left behind, abandoned, undone.
Yet I hear her voice, and I still rejoice,
For the love we had, though it's over,
I will love that girl forever.

Hope she's well, and she's found someone,
Had those children that we talked of,
Still I sit alone, dream of only one,
I could never love any other,
For I'll love that girl forever.

Here is another from the other side of the coin.

The Man That I Came To Love

The man that I came to love,
Is gone, he is far, far away.
He's gone but my love still remains,
The memories linger and say,
I always will love you, my dear.
In memory I keep you near.
I look at our daughter and see,
An echo of how it should be.

I whisper your name ev'ry night,
I still hold your picture so tight,
And I tell our child stories you told,
Though she wishes you were here to hold.
Each night as I lay in my bed,
See the pillow where you layed your head.
I cry myself slowly to sleep,
And dream of you dear as I weep.

Oh why, oh why, I cry,
Did I ever let love pass me by.
The only man I ever loved,
He is gone, and I ask myself why.
Foolish pride it was drove him away,
So alone in my bed will I stay.
But memories help me to find,
Some peace, of a sorrowful kind.
The man that I came to love,
Is gone, he is far, far away.

A Courtin' He Will Go
 by Shorty Dawkins

There was a young man, name of Mad Mountain Jack,
He decided a gal of his own he did lack.
Pretty Molly appealed to him, pretty and bold,
It was Molly he yearned for and wanted to hold.

Now Jack he was simple and kind of naive,
He called on dear Molly, 'twas on Christmas Eve.
When she answered the door, he knew not what to say,
Molly closed shut the door, "Jack be gone on your way."

Young Jack he was stubborn and did not give up,
So he sent her some flowers and asked her to sup.
I'll cook you a meal that will please you and more,
Not the kind of a meal that you buy at the store.

Molly sent him her answer, I'll be there at eight,
For a man who can cook, it is rare, it is great.
But one thing I must ask you. please never to do,
In the house will you never your tobacco chew.

Jack decided his ardor which burned like a torch,
Was worth it to him to take chew on the porch.
As you well might imagine the dinner went well,
From the Chapel soon came sounds of their wedding bells.

Now all you young fellers who yearn for a gal,
And you want her to love you and be your best pal,
If your ardor should flame, if it burns like a torch,
Just remember to take your chew out on the porch.
