Kye's Music & Lyrics: "After You've Gone" by Marion Harris, Henry Creamer, & Turner Layton (1918); Jessy Carolina Cover

Marion Harris, Henry Creamer, & Turner Layton


Now won't you listen dearie while I say
How can you tell me that you're goin' away?
Don't say that we must part,
Don't break my achin’ heart
You know I've loved you truly many years,
I loved you night and day
How can you leave me, can't you see my tears?
Listen while I say

After you've gone, and left me cryin’
After you've gone, there's no denyin’
You'll feel blue, you'll feel sad
You'll miss the dearest pal that you've ever had

There'll come a time, now don't forget it
There'll come a time, when you'll regret it
Some day, when you grow lonely
You heart will break like mine and you'll want me only
After you've gone,
After you've gone away

Oh after the years, we've been together
The joy and tears and all kinds of weather
Someday, blue and downhearted
You'll long to be with me right back where you started

After I'm gone, after I'm gone away

When I hear this song,
it’s like a tear has opened inside me,
and echoing through it are Booker, Elizabeth, the Luteces and Columbia.
I wish I could step through and become
a part of the worlds which have become a part of me.
