The Canadian Soldiers' Song Book/When I Leave the World Behind

69—WHEN I LEAVE THE WORLD BEHIND

I'll leave the sunshine to the flowers,
I'll leave the springtime to the trees,
And to the old folks I'll leave the mem'ries
Of a baby upon their knees.
I'll leave the night-time to the dreamers
I'll leave the song-birds to the blind
I'll leave the moon above to those in love,
When I leave the world behind,
When I leave the world behind.
