Sailing Away from Kathleen.

Sailing away from my Kathleen, while the teardrop is dimming her eyes;
Over the billows so bounding now are wafted my heart's gentle sighs.
Fondly I think of our parting, and the heart that is waiting for me;
Sailing away from my Kathleen to the land far away o'er the sea.
Sailing away, Sailing away; far from each once happy scene;
Lone is my heart, in tears" I depart, sailing away from Kathleen.
Sailing away from my Kathleen, and the Isle that Is dear evermore;
Lonely I left her repining in the neat little cot by the shore.
Now, while the stars, o'er the billows, shed around me their beautiful gleam,
Wanders my heart to my Kathleen, on the bright loving wings of a dream.- Cho.
