The Letter From Over the Sea 2.
Written and composed by Carney Chambers.

This is the letter sure Barney has brought roe,
It's from the dear ones far over the sea,
Sure there's never a heart could ever forget them,
I know that I left them in sorrow and tears.
The sweet voice of comfort now is all silent,
Since I have left my own mother's knee.
The cot I was born in is taken now from her,
It says in this letter from over the sea.

This is the letter sure Barney has brought me,
It's from the dear one far over the sea;
The boys and the girls they all gather round me
To hear that sweet letter from over the sea.

Sure I'll never forget when the big ship was ready,
The tears from her eyes rolled down on the shore,
Where she said good-bye, Barney, you're going forever,
Like the leaves with the tide you will come back no more.
Heaven, God bless you, I know that she loves me,
More than the jewels wherever I be,
If the sun shines to-morrow no more I'll have sorrow,
But go back with this letter from over the sea.-Chorus.
