German Home Upon the Rhine.
Sung by Gus Williams.

My dear old German home dot stands upon de Rhine
I am thinking of you, and it breaks my heart,
I left you long ago, when I was a leedle boy,
I never thought that from you I would part.
My fader used to smoke his pipe, und mudder used to knit,
Side by side dot flower-covered door;
But der wheel by de mill now has turned de oder way
Und dose happy days vill come to me no more.

My dear old German home dot stands upon de Rhine
Oh! vat fond recollections you bring back to me;
But ven I'm old und feeble, den bring me dere to die
In my leedle German home across de sea

I remember ven my poor old fader took me on his knee,
He kissed me und he told me not to cry,
Dot de place vould soon be sold, for de soldiers dey vould come,
Und soon after dot my parents dey did die.
Yah, vot I said vos true, sure de soldiers dey did come,
Und dey took my dear old home away from me;
But ven I'm dead und gone, den lay me by der side,
In my leedle German home across de sea.-Chorus.
