American Old Time Song Lyrics: 14 I've Wandered By The Hut Side
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 14
I've Wandered by the Hut Side.
I've wandered by the hut side,
Where Nelly used to dwell;
And sat upon the seat we made,
My aching heart did dwell.
But now she's gone to happier climes,
Her troubles tiny are o'er;
This darkey's heart is breaking fast,
For darling Nelly Moore.
Then good-bye, good-bye. Nelly, dear,
We ne'er shall see you more;
You're gone to happier, better climes,
Your troubles they are o'er.
Oh, she was everything to me,
We loved each other well;
And all the darkies in the place,
Thought all the world of Nell.
I can't help cry to think she's dead-
Oh, Nell why have you gone.
And left this darkey- by himself
To walk about alone?-Chorus.
I almost think I see you now
Away up in the sky;
If we be good, old massa says,
We'll go there when we die.
So I'll be patient, Nelly, love,
I'll see you bye-and-bye;
And, oh, what happy times we'll have
Away up in the sky.-Chorus.
