American Old Time Song Lyrics: 05 I'll Meet Her When The Sun Goes Down
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 5
I'll Meet Her when the Sun Goes Down.
Written by Wm. Welch for, and sung by Billy Banks.
In an ivy-covered little cot,
About a mile and a half from town,
Dwells a maideu that I dearly love,
And I'll meet her when the sun goes down;
Her cheeks are like the red, red rose,
Her hair is a beautiful browu;
She's the darling of my heart, she is,
And I'll meet her when the sun goes down.
Oh! how I love pretty little Mary,
She's the keeper of a dairy;
Then it's oh! my turtle dove,
I will meet you when the sun goes down.
In the evening when my work is done,
With my true love I am found;
Ina quiet little nook, by a babbling brook,
I meet her when the sun goes down;
When Sunday comes we take a walk.
In the woods we stroll all around;
Next Sunday at nine I'll call her mineWe'll be married when the sun goes down.-Chorus.
