Subject: Lyrics to verses of "Always" (Irving Berlin)
You can hear the verses here:
"Always" - sing-along at GreenRidge Estates

Irving Berlin wrote this in 1925 for Ellin McKay while he was wooing her despite her father's determination to keep them apart. They married in 1926 and death (hers) finally parted them in 1988, a year before he passed away at age 101.   Guess he really meant the words of this song.
