Subject: Lyr Add: GOODBYE (from 'White Horse Inn')
From: John in Brisbane
Date: 31 Oct 99 - 09:34 PM

Not folk, but a great sing - I had to do the typing for a friend and thought I'd share the lyrics. I haven't tried to find the score yet. Do I have the title and name of the show correct? Regards, John

GOODBYE

My heart is broken; but what care I?
Such pride inside me has woken,
I'll try my best not to cry, by and by,
When the final farewells must be spoken,
I'll join the Legion, that's what I'll do,
And in some far distant region,
V/here human hearts are staunch and true,
I shall start my life anew. (CHORUS)

CHORUS
Goodbye. It's time I sought a foreign clime,
Where I may find there are hearts more kind than I leave behind.
And so I go to fight a savage foe,
Although, I know, I be far away by the close of day.
(Although I'll be sometimes missed by the girls I've kissed)
In some Abyssinian French dominion I shall do my bit,
And fall for the flag, if I must.
Where the desert sand is nice and handy, I'll be full of grit;
You won't see my heels for the dust.
I'll do or die, you'll know the reason why when told
Of bold Leopold's "last stand" for the fatherland.

I'm sick of standing behind a chair,
Bread-sauce respectfully handing.
Henceforth I'm free as the air, I declare,
And ny chest has a chance of expanding.
I'm done with waiting, and now I plan,
To join the army of "he" men,
And show that nation, if I can,
That a waiter's still a man. (CHORUS)

Goodbye, goodbye, I wish you all a last goodbye.
Goodbye, goodbye; I wish you all a last goodbye.

The 4th, is it, line of the chorus should go:

Although I know I'll be sometimes missed by the girls I've kissed.

Wasn't this a big hit for Joseph Locke

Yeah Josef Locke (note spelling) sang this and it has been re-released on CD in the last few years. It also featured in the Movie "Hear My Song" I remember it vividly as a song one of my Uncles sang for my Grandmother(who was blind) on Boxing day when I was about 4 years old and followed it with "Hear my Song, Violetta"
