Write Me a Letter from Home.

Lonely I sit me and weep,
Weep as I have not for years;
Why do mine eyes fail to keep
Back these affectionate tears?
I think of dear ones over the sea,
Who love me wherever I roam;
Oh! go to them, tell them for me,
To write me a letter from home.

Have they forgotten me now,
Or do they expect me to come?
No, no, go and tell them for me,
To write me a letter from home.

I think of the old-fashioned cot,
I've left it for many a year;
The last word, God bless you! I've got
From mother and father so dear.
They hoped that my voyage would be
A pleasant one over the foam;
Oh I some one go and tell them for me,
To write me a letter from home.-Chorus.

Yes, We'll Write You a Letter from Home.

We'll write you a letter from home,
To tell how we're longing to hear
The footsteps that nevermore come,
The voice that to us was so dear.
For, oh! you are still, still the same,
Though dark raging seas may divide;
We sigh, when we bear your dear name,
To welcome you back to our side.

We'll write you a letter from home,
We dream of you, darling, each night;
We love you wherever you roam,
We'll kiss every word that we write.

We'll write you a letter from home,
To bear you our love o'er the sea;
To gladden your heart as you roam.
And cheer you wherever you be.
'Tis lonely while you are away,
For sweet was the joy that you gave;
Oh! sadly we pine while you stray,
Come back o'er the lone weary wave.-Chorus.
