By The Old Oak Tree

(Percy Wenrich)


Al Bowlly & Ella Logan

Al:
There’s no spot I cherish like the old oak tree
I used to know some years ago
With my sweetheart by my side we’d spend the happy hours
They linger yet, I can’t forget

Ella:
By the old oak tree, by the old oak tree
By the old oak tree we sat together
There we learned to care, all our troubles share
Whether it was fair or stormy weather

Down in the shady lane
In gingham gowns so plain
We sang love’s sweet refrain
So tenderly

Life was full of joy
Happy girl and boy
When we met together
By the old oak tree

Down in the shady lane
In gingham gowns so plain
You sang love’s sweet refrain
So tenderly

Life was full of joy
Happy girl and happy boy
When we sat together
By the old oak tree
