SWEET BELLE MAHONE.
Soon beyond the harbor-bar shall my bark be sailing far;
O'er the world I wander lone, sweet Belle Mahone.
O'er thy grave I weep good-bye-hear, oh, hear my lonely cry;
Oh, without thee what am I, sweet Belie Mahone?
Sweet Belle Mahone, sweet Belle Mahone;
Wait for me at heaven's gate, sweet Belle Mahone.
Lonely, like a withered tree, what is all the world to me?
Life And light were all in thee, sweet Belle Mahone.
Daisies pale are growing o'er all my heart can e'er adore;
Shall I meet thee, evermore, sweet Belle Mahone.-Chorus.
Calmly, sweetly, slumber on (only one I call my own),
While in tears I wander lone, sweet Belle Mahone.
Faded now seems everything, but when comes eternal Spring,
With thee I'll be wandering, sweet Belle Mahone.-Chorus.
