Red River Valley

partituur van Red River Valley

Er wordt nog vaak gedacht dat Red River Valley een bewerking is van het uit 1896 stammende lied In the Bright Mohawk Valley van James Kerrigen. Uit onderzoek blijkt dat het lied al langer bekend was in minstens vijf Canadese provincies. Het vermoeden bestaat dan ook dat het lied stamt van de Wolseley expeditie naar de Red River Valley in Manitoba.

Tekst Edit

From this valley they say you are going;
We will miss your bright eyes and sweet smile;
For they say you are taking the sunshine,
That has brightened our path for a while.

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 one that has loved you so true.

Won't you think of the valley you're leaving.
Oh how lonely, how sad it will be?
Oh think of the fond heart you're breaking,
And the grief you are causing to me.

As you go to your home by the ocean,
May you never forget those sweet hours,
That we spent in the Red River Valley,
And the love we exchanged 'mid the flowers.
