The Girl I Loved Out in the Golden West - Song and Lyrics by Charles Avril and C.H. Scoggins

The Girl I Loved Out In The Golden West

The Girl I Loved Out In The Golden West

Year 1903

Music by Charles Avril
Poem by C.H. Scoggins

The Tolbert R Ingram Music Co.
Denver, Colorado
  First Verse
Twilight shadows come and go, In the evening's sunset glow, And the birds are singing goodnight in the dell; And I hear the robin trill, In its nest beneath the hill, Singing melodies my sad heart knows so well, While I listen in the glow Of pale moon rising slow, I hear a voice of one I long best; Tho' she left me long before, Yet I see her as of yore, The girl I loved out in the golden west.

Second Verse
Just like children running wild, For no care our world defiled, And our laughter echoed load among the hills; And we rambled in the dell, Near the spot I loved so well, When I think of her my heart with sadness fills: For one day down by the brook, 'Neath a cool and shady nook, She laid her golden head upon my breast; It was there her first sweet kiss Filled my raptured soul with bliss, The girl I loved out in the golden west.

Chorus
Once again I feel the spell, But no words of mine can tell, I can see her grave beneath the mountain crest; And I'm keeping green the place, Where tonight I see the face Of the girl I loved out in the golden west.
