Verse:
There's a song in the land of the li - ly,
Each sweet - heart has heard with a sigh.
Ov - er high gar - den walls, This sweet ech - o falls,
As a sol - dier boy whis - pers good - bye.
 
Chorus:
Smile the while you kiss me sad a - dieu,
When the clouds roll by I'll come to you.
Then the skies will seem more blue,
Down in lov - ers lane my dear - ie,
Wed - ding bells will ring so mer - ri - ly,
Ev - 'ry tear will be a mem o - ry,
So wait and pray each night for me,
Till We Meet A - gain.
