I know where my darling is waiting,
With love in her beautiful eyes;
I know that the breezes are frightened
With rapture and passionate sighs;
I know her red lips are murmuring
With many a lingering sweet.
And I know that her heart counts the moments
'Till I lie at her beautiful feet.
I know, I know,
I know she is waiting for me;
I know where my darling is waiting,
I know she is waiting for me.

I know that her dreams are but visions.
Where loving together are we;
I know that in waking or sleeping
Her thoughts are but day dreams of me;
I know while she breathes that her fond heart
Can never prove false or grow cold.
And that stronger than death is the life of
The true love that never grows old.
I know, I know,
I know she is waiting for me;
I know that my loved one is waiting,
I know she is waiting for me.

General Grant's Request: I Want to See Nellie Once More.
Written and Composed by Harry Barron.

Great tho' the pain while my soul is up starting,
Death I can face, I have faced it before;
Soon will the spirit from earth be departing.
Would I could see my child, Nellie, once more.

Come to me 'Nellie, dear Nellie, come from that far away shore.
Come to your father, my darling, he wants to see Nellie once more.

I've heard the dull roar of the musketry rattle.
Mingling its sounds with the moans of the slain;
Defended the flag in many a battle,
And lived thro" it all to see Nellie again.

Then come to me now, darling Nellie, come from that far away shore,
Come to your father, he's dying, And wants to see Nellie once more.

Soon will the trials of this life be over.
Hark to that sound! Who is it that's comet
Soon I must leave all my darlings forever;
Yes, 'tis her voice, my Nellie is home.

Oh, come to my bosom, dear Nellie, Nellie from Albion's far shore,
I can die now contented, my darling, since Nellie is with me once more.
