12-beat intro.  Play 3-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
This song is in 3/4 waltz time.
Oh Genevieve, I'd give the world, To live again the lovely past!
The rose of youth was dew-impearled; But now it withers in the blast.
I see thy face in ev'ry dream, My waking thoughts are full of thee,
Thy glance is in the starry beam, That falls along the summer sea.
Oh Genevieve, sweet Genevieve, The days may come, the days may go,
But still the hands of mem'ry weave, The blissful dreams of long ago.
