All of my life I've been so happy
While I have had you by my side.
Now you say you're gonna leave me
For to become someone else's bride.
Oh, the river of love it has gone muddy
And the flowers , they are dying on the shore.
And the blue skies have all turned to darkness
And the nightingale will sing no more.
What can I do to hide my sorrow,
What can I do to ease the pain?
How can I keep these tears from fallin'
Oh, darlin', won't you come back home again?
Oh, the river of love it has gone muddy
And the flowers , they are dying on the shore.
And the blue skies have all turned to darkness
And the nightingale will sing no more.

Tomorrow I will take you to the station
I will see that you're safely on that train.
When the Two Nineteen has parted
I'll never ever see your smile again.
Oh, the river of love it has gone muddy
And the flowers , they are dying on the shore.
And the blue skies have all turned to darkness
And the nightingale will sing no more.
And the blue skies have all turned to darkness
And the nightingale will sing no more.
