Last Autumn I went out of town,
Just for a change of air;
It's very strange-but so it was-
A charmer l met there.
How pleasantly the evening pass'd
Whilst list'ning to her talk I
For I first made her acquaintance.
When I took an evening walk.

There's nothing half so jolly as a moonlight walk,
A mooni light walk, a moonlight walk;
There's nothing half so jolly as a moonlight walk,
A moonlight walk for me.

Quite by myself I took a stroll,
To view the lovely scenes.
To read the stars, as some folks say.
Though I scarce know what that means.
I had not gone far, before I heard
A footstep on the grass;
On turning round, just by my side,
I saw this damsel pass.-Chorus.

The next night, too, I saw her there­'Twas strange now, was it not?
And though I scarce can tell you how,
Acquainted we soon got.
5he said her pa was captain of
The well-known "Tomahawk,"
And like me, to study nature's scenes,
!she took that moonlight walk.-Chorus,

right after night it seem'd as if
By fate we bolh were led,
So, long before I came to town,
I asked her if she'd wed.
She blushing, said, "She felt that she
My pleasure could not baulk,"
She promised that she'd have me, while
We look our moonlight walk.-Chorus.

Now shortly I shall call her mine,
And we will go away
To some secluded spot to pass
The honeymoon so gay;
Andi there together all the day.
Of bygone times we'll talk,
And to fondley speak about
Our pleasant moonlight walk - Chorus.
