My Old Pal
Jimmie Rodgers Lyrics


I'm thinking of you tonight old pal
And wishing that you were here
I'm dreaming of the times and the days gone by
When you filled my heart with cheer

I remember the nights when all alone
We sang sweet [Incomprehensible]
No other face can take your place
In my heart old pal of mine
The old pals are always the best you see
New friends you can find every day
But they can't fill their places or ever be
Like the old pals of yesterday

I'm wondering just where you are tonight
And if you ever think of me
It would make my weary heart so light sweetheart
Your face again to see

But in my checked life I find
Nothing comes right it seems
Still you'll always be a pal of mine
Though it may be only in dreams

The old pals are always the best you see
New friends you can find every day
But they can't fill their places or ever be
Like the old pals of yesterday

0:10 I'm thinking of you tonight old pal
And wishing that you were here
I'm dreaming of the times and the days gone by
When you filled my heart with cheer
I remember the nights when all alone
We sang sweet Adeline
No other face can take your place
In my heart old pal of mine

1:14 The old pals are always the best you see
New friends you can find every day
But they can't fill their places or ever be
Like the old pals of yesterday
I'm wondering just where you are tonight
And if you ever think of me
It would make my weary heart so light sweetheart
Your face again to see
But in my checkered life I find
Nothing comes right it seems
Still you'll always be a pal of mine
Though it may be only in dreams

2:37 The old pals are always the best you see
New friends you can find every day
But they can't fill their places or ever be
Like the old pals of yesterday

@wildwood valleyboy Much Thanks, I'd correct. I'm not native speaker.

wildwood valleyboy

...are you wanting a correction to lyrics ?,...if so,...it is NOT "sweet at all a line",...it is - 'SWEET ADELINE' !,...and farther down,...NOT "checked" life,...but -'CHECKERED' life !

I remember my great gramma Burke playing this on a windup Victrols when I was a child.
