Subject: RE: Origins/ADD: Meet Me Tonight in the Moonlight
There was another verse, just came to me:
O you told me once, dear that you loved me
That nothing could cause us to part,
But a link in the chain has been broken
Leaving me with a sad, broken heart.
Sinsull- it must have been Vernon Delhart. If not, someone who learned it from him or his recording. The 1930s wwould be about the right time, for that old talkin-machine we had....and the fact that I still sing, "The Wreck of the Old Number Nine," sort of pins down the singer on the record to be Dalhart. I just never thought about who wrote it!
