This card was inspired by the song I'm Wearing My Heart Away for You, written by Charles K. Harris in 1902. It is not the same song made popular by George Jones years later.
Here are the Lyrics to the song:
I'M WEARING MY HEART AWAY FOR YOU
I wonder where you are tonight, my love,
As all alone I sit and dream.
I wonder if your heart's with me tonight,
And if the same stars for you gleam.
I sometimes fear there is another love,
Some fairer face has won your heart;
But Ah, I hope the day will never come,
The day that we two must live apart.
The bees are droning in the wild wood, love,
The flowers their tiny heads bow low.
The birds are singing soft and plaintively,
They miss your dear kind face I know.
From o'er the meadow comes a faint perfume,
It whispers gently, "Love you're true;"
But Oh, my darling, if you only knew,
I'm wearing my heart away for you.
I'm wearing my heart away for you,
It cries aloud, "My love be true,"
I dream of you by night, I long for you by day,I'm wearing my heart away for you.
I found an old recording on the internet archive, but it's very squeaky. If you're interested in listening to it anyway, here it is.
