The Bright Sherman Valley
(Robie Kingsley)
(recorded by Vernon Dalhart)

From this valley they tell me you're going,
I miss your blue eyes and bright smile.
For you take with you all the sunshine,
That has brightened my path for awhile.

Let's consider a why you are leaving,
Do not hasten to bid me adieu.
But remember the bright Sherman Valley,
And the girl that has loved you so true.

Do you think of the home you are leaving,
Of your parents so kind and so true?
Do you think of the heart you are breaking,
And the girl who has loved you so true?

When I go to my home in the evening,
How sad and how lonely it will be.
I will pray to the Lord to forgive you,
For the trouble you've caused me to see.

I have waited a long time my darling,
For those words that you never would say.
And at last my poor heart is breaking,
For they tell me you're going away..

When you're far from the scenes of the valley,
And they tell me your journey is through.
Will you think of the bright Sherman Valley,
And the girl who has loved you so true.
