VIOLETS DIPPED IN DEW
Words and Music by the late Wm. H. Delehanty.

As I strolled out one evening,
The sun had just gone down.
While leisurely meandering
A little way from town;
I there beheld a damsel,
With eyes the brightest blue,
Beneath her dark-eye lashes,
Like violets dipped in dew.

Chorus.
A smile was all she gave me-(symph.)
But how it did enslave me!
'Twas love, the first I knew;
There's some sweet charm entrancing
Within her eyes so blue,
A dreamy, soft expression,
Like violets dipped in dew.

I followed on behind her,
I think she knew it well,
And, as a sweet reminder,
Her handkerchief it fell;
I raised the scented linen
From off the grassy ground;
Her name, in letters crimson,
On one corner there I found.

Chorus.
She deigned to smile upon me-(Symph.)
That moment she had won me,
My heart it pierced me through;
There's some sweet charming entrancing
Within her eyes so blue,
A dreamy, soft expression,
Like violets dipped in dew.

At length I did approach her,
And ventured into talk,
By asking her permission
To ioin her lonely walk;
She blushing, frowning, smiling,
Said-" Oh! I think you're rude."
But those blue eyes, beguiling,
Seemed to say-"I wish you would."

Chorus.
So, arm in arm we wandered-(Symph.)
Yes, side by side meandered,
And told our love tales, too;
There's some sweet charm entrancing
Within her eyes so blue,
A dreamy, soft expression,
Like violets dipped in dew.
