Copyright, 1882. by Wm. McVey.

Oh, Barney, dear Barney. I sit by the river,
By the Shannon's bright waters I rest as of yore;
But you. Barney loved one, are not here beside me,
You're miles far away on Columbia's shore.
Recall to your mind, love, the fond vows I gave you,
I hope you will ever to me remain true;
If you'd me forsake, love, my poor heart would break, love,
Asleep or awake, love, I'm thinking of you.

If you'd ceased to cherish me, Barney, I'd perish,
But sadly I'd fear you'd another one woo;
If you've my love slighted, my life then is blighted,
Oh, Barney, dear Barney, I'm. thinking of you.

Oh, Barney, dear Barney, why have'nt you answered
The long loving letters I sent to you, dear;
Why haven't you wrote me these words of affection,
"Norah, despair not, your Barney's sincere."
The birds 'mong the leaves of the trees gently twitter,
The country all 'round me is splendid to view.
But these scenes I scorn, love, for you I now mourn, love,
Oh, Barney, my own love, I'm thinking of you.-Chorus.
