Roses are Blooming     Harry Hibbs


The sun was shining, the night that we parted

I held you and kissed you and called you my own

In words sweet and tender, you said that you loved me

And that you'd return, when roses bloom.



Roses are blooming, come back to me darling

Come back to me darling and never more roam

Robins are singing, church bells are ringing

Roses are blooming, so come back my own.


The days have been long dear, the nights have been jerried

I missed you my darling since you went away

But still I kept hoping, that you would remember

That you would remember and come back some day.




Roses are blooming so come back my own.
