Program Notes on Long, Long Ago by Bayly, T.H. :

The song Long, Long Ago is an English song about lost love and nostalgia.

It was composed in 1833 by Thomas Haynes Bayly.

Originally entitled The Long Ago, its name was apparently changed to Long, Long Ago by the editor Rufus Wilmot Griswold upon its first publication in 1843, posthumously, in a Philadelphia magazine, along with a collection of other songs and poems by Bayly.

The song was well received and became one of the most popular songs in the United States in 1844.

This arrangement of Long, Long Ago is set in the key of C Major (also available in F Major).

Its vocal range is G3 to A4.

The voice part is appropriate for a beginning voice student.

Long, Long Ago

1. Tell me the tales that to me were so dear,
Long, long ago, long, long ago,
Sing me the songs I delighted to hear,
Long, long ago, long ago.
Now you are come all my grief is removed,
Let me forget that so long you have roved.
Let me believe that you love as you loved,
Long, long ago, long ago.

2. Do you remember the paths where we met?
Long, long ago, long, long ago,
Ah, yes, you told me you'd never forget,
Long, long ago, long ago.
Then to all others, my smile you preferred,
Love, when you spoke, gave a charm to each word.
Still my heart treasures the phrases I heard,
Long, long ago, long ago.

3. Though by your kindness my fond hopes were raised,
Long, long ago, long, long ago,
You by more eloquent lips have been praised,
Long, long ago, long ago.
But, by long absence your truth has been tried,
Still to your accents I listen with pride,
Blessed as I was when I sat by your side,
Long, long ago, long ago.
