Eddy Arnold - "Red River Valley" lyrics

From this valley they say you are leaving
I wll miss your brown eyes and sweet smile

That lightened my way for a while.
For you take with you all of the sunshine
Do not hasten to bid me adieu
Come and sit by my side if you love me
And remember the Red River Valley

And the boy who has loved you so true.
--- Instrumental ---

Oh, how lonesome and sad it will be
And the grief you are bringing to me.
Always think of the valley you're leavin'

Come and sit by my side if you love me
And then think of the fond heart you're breaking
Do not hasten to bid me adieu
And remember the Red River Valley
And the boy who has loved you so true...
