South Dakota Songbook

"We'll Meet Again"
We'll meet again,
Don't know where, Don't know when,
But I know We'll meet again Some sunny day.
Keep smiling through
Just like you Always do
Till the blue skies Drive the dark clouds Far away.
So will you please Say hello
To the folks That I know
Tell them, I won't be long.
They'll be happy to know
That as you saw me go
I was singing this song.
We'll meet again,
Don't know where, Don't know when,
But I know We'll meet again Some sunny day.
