Words and Music by W. R. Williams.
Sung at Tony Pastor's Theatre
by John and James Russell.

Stroll through the meadows, cross o'er a stream,
You'll see my darling, she's poet's dream;
Soft flowing tresses, voice low and sweet.
None half so handsome, none half so neat.
Fair as the lily, fair as a rose.
She's as the sun-shine, wherever she goes;
I'm always lonely when she is gone;
She is my darling, sweet Nellie Bawn.

Yes, she's my Nellie, no fairer seen;
Life with my darling seems like a dream;
Eyes so entrancing, grace like a fawn;
who would not love her, sweet Nellie Bawn!

When we are married early in sprint'.
There'll be rejoicing, church-bells will ring;
And little Nellie, she'll be my wife,
And as a sunbeam all thro' my life;
Her way is simple, thoughts ever pure;
I will be happy forever, I'm sure;
And with my treasure now there is dawn;
My only darling, sweet Nellie Bawn.-Chorus.
