In A Garden In Paradise

In a garden in Paradise
Thats where my dreams come true
Happiness lingers in every place
And chases away the blues
I am dreaming always of you
All the day through loving and true
I am dreaming of a garden in Paradise

The Convict And The Rose

Within my prison all so dreary
Alone I sit with weary heart
Im thinking of my lonely darling
From her forever I must part

The rose she sent me as a token
She sent it just to light my gloom
To tell me that her heart is broken
To cheer me before I meet my doom

She wrote I took it from the garden
Where once we wondered side by side
But now you hold no hope of pardon
And I can never be your bride

The judge would not believe my story
The jury said I had to pay
But to the rose in all its glory
Not guilty is all that I can say

Good-bye sweetheart for in the morning
I’ll meet my maker and repose
And when I go at daylights dawning
Against my heart they’ll find your rose

Till We Meet Again

There’s a song in the land of the lily
Each sweetheart has heard with a sigh
Over high garden walls
The sweet echo falls
When a loving boy whispers Good-bye

Smile awhile
You kiss me sad adieu
Till the clouds roll by
I’ll come to you
Then the skies will seem more blue
Down in lover’s lane my dearie
Wedding bells will ring so merrily
Every tear will be a memory
So wait and pray each night for me
Till we meet again

Though Good-bye means the birth of a tear drop
Hello means the birth of a smile
And the smile will erase
The tear-[hi]lighted trace
When we meet in the After awhile
