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 pathway awhile

Come and sit my my side if you love me,

Do not hasten to bid me adieu
Just remember the Red River Valley,

And the one who has loved you so true

Won’t you think of this valley you’re leaving
Oh how lonely, how sad it will be
Oh think of the fond heart that you’re breaking
And the grief that you’re causing me   (chorus)
