BERNARD REILLY.
Copyright, 1883, by Will. H. Kennedy.
Words and Music by Harry Kennedy.

Bernard Reilly, Bernard Reilly, days have passed so lonely,
Since you left your cottage home to sail beyond the sea;
Every night and every morn I'm thinking of you only.
Won't you write a loving line to show you think of me?
In the meadow by the brook, 'neath the spreading tree,
Where we carved our names together, darlin', you and me;
There at twilight oft I wander, thinking of you fondly,
Won't you write a loving line to little Kate McGee?

Chorus.
In the meadow by the brook, neath the spreading tree,
Where we carved our names together, darlin', you and me;
Bernard Reilly, Bernard Reilly, faith, I love but thee.
Won't you write a loving line to little Kate McGee?

Bernard Reilly. don't forget the vows we pledged together,
Near that little village church beside the shady lane;
Well you know when last we met, to roam the brush and heather,
Then you asked me, Bernard, dear, if I would change my name.
though you've sailed so far away over the ocean wide,
Yet I'll never forget my promise, that I'd be your bride;
Bernard Reilly, Bernard, darlin', stay those tears of sorrow,
Won't you write a loving line to little Kate McGee?-Chorus.
