American Old Time Song Lyrics: 05 Jenny Who Lives In The Dell
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 5
Jenny, Who Lives in the Dell.
Oh! the fairies have not all departed
And hid this dull planet adieu;
For I know a maid gentle-hearted,
With eyes that are tender And blueYou'd take, in a moment, to he one-
She weaves in all bosoms a spell;
So if you are longing to see one,
It's Jenny, who lives in the dell.
Jenny, who lives in the dell,
Jeuny, who lives in the dell;
There is no maid so bright And bonny
As Jeuny, who lives in the dell.
Oh! I'm sighing wherever I wander,
My heart has been stolen away;
On nothing at all do I ponder,
But Jenuy's fair face, all the day;
But she sings as blithesome as ever,
And knows that I love her so well;
For, love, in his roving, has never
Found Jenny who lived in the dell. - Chorus
