LONG TIME AGO.

George Pope Morris. Charles Edward Horn.

1. Near the lake where drooped the wil- low, Long time a - go!

2. Rock, and tree, and flow - ing wa-ter, Long time a - go!

3. Min - gled were our hearts for-ev - er, Long time a - go!


Where the rock threw back the bil - low. Bright - er than snow!

Bird, and bee, and blos - som taught her Love's spell to know.

Can I now for - get her? nev - er No, lost one, no!


Dwelt a maid be - loved and cher-ished By high and low;

While to my fond words she list - ened, Mur - mur - ing low,

To her grave these tears are giv-en, Ev - er to flow!


But with Au - tumn's leaf she per - ished. Long time a - go!

Ten - der - ly her dove - eyes glist-ened. Long time a - go!

She's the star I missed from heaven. Long time a - go!
