Of Yesterday (1938)
I have left something behind me--
Just a bit of youth, I guess--
Just a bit of carefree laughter
And a bit of happiness. I have left in the past behind me
Just a by gone memory, dear--
Just a bit of joy and sunshine--
And mingled now with a tear. I have left in the shadow behind me
Just the fancies of childhood days.
Just a love of childish pleasures
And the footprints of those ways. Let us leave in the past behind us--
The ruts made by our load
And in the future before us
Take the straight paved road.
