Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 21
SHE'S WAITING- ON THE QUAY.
Copyright, Inn, by H. R Fredricks.
Words and Music by G. Lord Davis.
To-night we are nearing the loved ones at home,
And my heart beats with rapture and joy,
To-night ev'ry lass to the haven will come,
To welcome back her sailor boy.
I know a sweet maiden with eyes beaming bright,
With the rest will be waiting for me;
Yes, I know she will come, she will be there to-night.
Awaiting on the quay.
She'll wait on the quay, yes, she'll wait there for me,
And happy the meeting will be;
I'll kiss 'way the tears that I've caused her for years,
When I meet her on the quay.
She's true as the stars that look'd down from the skies
On the night when I bade her adieu,
She's the pride of my heart and the light of my eyes,
So constant, so faithful and true.
I long to enfold her again in my arms,
And to hear her sweet love songs to me;
Yes, I long for a glimpse of the harbor, and her
Awaiting on the quay.-Chorus.
