YOU’RE THE FLOWER OF MY HEART, SWEET ADELINE
 
div
 
In the evening when I sit alone a dreaming
Of days gone by, love to me so dear
There's a picture that in fancy 'oft appearing
Brings back the time love when you were near
It is then I wonder where you are my darling
And if your heart to me is still the same
For the sighing wind and nightingale a singing
Are breathing only your own sweet name

Chorus: Sweet Adeline, my Adeline
At night, dear heart for you I pine
In all my dreams, your fair face beams
You're the flower of my heart, sweet Adeline

I can see your smiling face as when we wandered
Down by the brook-side just you and I
And it seems so real at times 'till I awaken
To find all vanished a dream gone by
If we meet sometime in after years my darling
I trust that I will find your love still mine
Though my heart is sad and clouds above are hovering
The sun again love for me would shine

Chorus:
