featuring the Elmer Iseler Singers
From this valley they say you are going,
I will miss your bright eyes and sweet smile,
For they say you are taking the sunshine
That brightened my pathway awhile.
Come and sit by my side if you love me,
Do not hasten to bid me adieu.
But remember the Red River Valley
And the girl that has loved you so true.
Cross the mountains and find a new valley,
We will win a new home in the West.
Come back soon, my brave one, come back for me.
And we’ll plan for the life that is best.
