In the Gloaming - American Quartet (1910)

A rendition by American Quartet (with Will Oakland) of "In the Gloaming", a song first composed in 1877 by Annie Fortescue Harrison (1850/1–1944) using lyrics taken from a poem by Meta Orred (1845/6-1893).

In the gloaming, oh my darling!

When the lights are dim and low,

And the quiet shadows falling

Softly come and softly go,

When the winds are sobbing faintly

With a gentle, unknown woe,

Will you think of me and love me

As you did once long ago?


In the gloaming, oh my darling!

Think not bitterly of me!

Though I passed away in silence,

Left you lonely, set you free,

For my heart was crushed with longing;

What had been could never be.

It was best to leave you thus, dear,

Best for you and best for me.
