I MAY BE GONE FOR A LONG LONG TIME from 1917 review "Hitchy-Koo" (Albert Von Tilzer (m) Lew Brown (l) ) recorded by - Grace La Rue The Peerless Quartet The Shannon Four as recorded by The Peerless Quartet Goodbye dear, I'm leaving you today, Don't cry dear, Just dry those tears away. Duty calls and I must obey, But I'll always hope and pray. While I'm sailing far across the sea, Will you always think of me? I may be gone for a long long time, Long long time, Long long time, But when I go You will know That I'll always pine For the day when you'll be mine. Be true to me for a long long time, Rain or shine, Sweetheart mine, And I'll be just as true to you As to the red white and blue, Though I'm gone for a long long time. One day dear, When I come back to you, We will build A little home for two. Then we'll settle down, dear, for life, Far away from care and strife. Cheer up dear, and when I'm far away, Don't forget to write each day. I may be gone for a long long time, Long long time, Long long time. But when I go You will know That I'll always pine For the day when you'll be mine. Be true to me for a long long time, Rain or shine, Sweetheart mine, And I'll be just as true to you As to the red white and blue, Though I'm gone for a long long time. I'm gone for a long long time, Rain or shine, Sweetheart mine, And I'll be just as true to you As to the red white and blue, Though I'm gone for a long long time.
