Young Companions
And I landed in Chicago In the very depth of hell.
It was there I took to drinking, I sinned both night and day, And there within my bosom A feeble voice would say:
" Then fare you well, my loved one, May God protect my boy, And blessings ever with him Throughout his manhood joy."
I courted a fair young maiden, Her name I will not tell, For I should ever disgrace her Since I am doomed for hell.
It was on one beautiful evening, The stars were shining bright, And with a fatal dagger I bid her spirit flight.
So justice overtook me, You all can plainly see, My soul is doomed forever Throughout eternity.
It's now I'm on the scaffold, My moments are not long; You may forget the singer But don't forget the song. 8a
