Two young men met on the street;
'Twas on one winter eve;
They were brothers, you could tell,
But one seemed 'bout to leave.
One was dressed in a uniform With God's love in his heart;
He took the other by the hand And said, Now we must part.
Come and go with me tonight,
I heard the other say,
God loves you brother dear;
He's pleading night and day.
Come with me to the mission hall, And there give God you heart;
Meet your mother up in heaven Where'll we never, never part.
No, I must go and join the boys,
And have another spree,
And this I promise faithfully,
T'will be the last for me;
Then I will come tomorrow night Forever to do the right.
Now my brother I must go And come tomorrow night.
Chorus:TWO BROTHERS continued
Tomorrow night has never come To that dear boy again;
God has called him from this world All full of guilt and sin.
His brother by his coffin stood With tears standing in his eyes Remembering that his last words was, I'll come tomorrow night.
Mrs. E.N. Campbell got this song from Irene and Gladys Wickson of Fisher. They sang it without music at Lawrence about 1930. She said that she had never seen it in print
