Words and Music by Walter H. Blakeslee.

There's a spot that's loved by all, 'neath the elms so grand and tall,
Where the pump stood on the corner of the green;
And the crystal water clear to my mem'ry ever dear,
That I drank from that old pump upon the green;
Now the thoughts of by-gone years, with their joys and with their tears,
Take me back to youth and friends in days of yore;
And the mem'ries clustered here 'round the" spot so loved and dear,
They will linger in my heart forevermore.

Golden days, they will never more return.
And, like by-gone friends, will never more be seen;
When life's shadows darken deep in my mem'ry,
I shall keep recollections of that old pump on the green.

With its long and tangled chain, I can see that pump again,
And the cup with water sparkling to the brim;
And a thousand diamonds bright could not glisten in my sight
Like the water from the old cup's rusty rim;
Though good fortune on me smiles, and in far-off spicy isles
I shall find a sunny home and wealth of gold,
I may rove the wide world o'er, but, oh, never, never more
Can I find a spot so dear as this of old.-Chorus.
