As the stars do in the night. Chorus.óBut that happy time is over, I've only grief and pain ; For I shall never, never see                          My Emma d-eais again.
We used to go out early To hoe de sugar cane, The time did pass so cherily,
When Emma Snow was seen ;: She trabled wid us daily,
And oft would tell her name ; , And we danced and sung so gaily To the Banjo's sweetest strain.
But that happy time is over, See
Now that happy time hath sorrow, The day is tamed" to night; I lost my dearest Emma, By the poison adder's bite. We miss'd her in the evening,
And we hunted far and wide, And we found her in the meadows, Whar she sicken'd and she died.
But that happy time is over, &c
