Chorus
All the good times are past and gone
All the good times are o'er
All the good times are past and gone
Little darling don't you weep no more

Oh don't you see that lonesome dove
Which flies from pine to pine
She's mourning for her own true love
Just like I mourn for mine

[chorus]

I wish to the Lord I'd never been born
Or died when I was young
Before I'd seen your two brown eyes
Or heard your flattering tongue

[chorus]

Come back, come back my own true love
And stay a while with me
If ever I had a friend in this world
You've been a friend to me

[chorus]
[chorus]
