Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 38
Words and Music by Harry S. Milter.
Sung with great success by Miss Annie Riley.
Barney, when you go away and leave me here alone.
Will you think of me some day, while far away you roam?
Think of me, your Molly, whose heart is sad with pain;
Oh, Barney, stay; don't go away; you'll not come back again.
Oh, Barney, dear, don't leave me here in sorrow, grief find pain,
Stay at home, Barney, my own; you'll not come back again.
Barney, when you're far away across the ocean blue.
You will meet with strangers gay; but none you'll find as true,
None so true as Molly, whose heart is sad with pain;
Some other face shall take my place; you'll not come back again.- Chorus.
Barney, must I say good-bye, perhaps forevermore?
Sad's the heart, but still I'll try to hear it. bravely o'er;
Listen to me, Barney, wherever you remain,
I'll think of thee and wait to see if you'll come back again.- Chorus
