OUR FAMILIAR SONGS.
Bold is my warrior good,
The love of Alfarata, Proud waves his snowy plume,
Along the Juniata. Soft and low he speaks to me, And then his war-cry sounding, Rings his voice in thunder loud, From height to height resounding.
So sang the Indian girl,
Bright Alfarata, Where sweep the waters
Of the blue Juniata. Fleeting years have borne away The voice of Alfarata, Still sweeps the river on,
Blue Juniata.
WHAT WILL YOU DO, LOVE?
Both the words and the music of this song were written by Samuel Lover, for his entertainment called " Irish Evenings."
