Sad - ness just makes me sigh,
I've come to say good -bye,
Al - tho' I go,
I've got those fare - well blues.
Those fare - well blues make me yearn,
That part - ing kiss seems to burn.
Fare - well, dear - ie,
Some -day I will re - turn.
Dream - ing of you is sweet,
Some - day a - gain we'll meet.
My fears for years
Were those sad fare - well blues.
