My Childhood's Happy Home.
Music, with Piano Forte accompaniment, published by Firth,
Pond & Co., New York.
Oh, give me back my home again, my childhood's
happy dream, When onward, free from grief or pain, flowed life's
untroubled stream— Tho' borne across the foaming sea, to distant climes I
roam, Still memory fondly clings to thee, my childhood's
happy home.
Chorus. My home, my home, my childhood's happy home, Still memory fondly clings to thee, my childhood's
happy home.
And when my toilsome journey's o'er, and life draws
near its close, I'll turn unto my native shore, to seek my wished
repose— Atid then thro' weary sorrows passed, the evening
bright will come, And then my sun will set at last, in childhood's happy
home.
Chorus. My home, my home, my childhood's happy home— And then my sun will set at last, in childhood's happy
home.
Emma Gray.
Music, with Piano Forte accompaniment, published by Henry
M'Caffrey, Baltimore.
Fairest coloured blossom,
Louisiana's pride, Fairer is my Emma Gray
Than all else beside. Ever, ever happy,
Joyous all the day, Venus never was so fair
As my dear Emma Gray,
