Words by Geo. C. Diehl. Music by Harry F. Keever.

There were two girls left orphans on a foreign shore,
And in poverty driven from their homestead's door;
They wandered to distant lands their bread for to earn,
And for years no news of each other could they learn.
Kind providence seemed to smile on the one through life,
Making her a fond mother and a loving wife,
While the other her lot was sad as could befall,
A poor disgraced outcast, pitied, but shunned by all.

Two poor little orphan girls with hearts loving and kind,
Driven from home their fortune to find;
The one who's in happiness, could she ever recall
A poor disgraced outcast, pitied, but shunned by all.

At last the news from one came, a message was sent
To a sister by one whose life was almost spent;
It told of a mournful story, too painful to repeat,
Of a misplaced confidence, a life on the street.
Sadful was the meeting, she held in her embrace
The sister that she loved, even in her disgrace:
She knew fortune was fickle, it was easy to fall-
A poor disgraced outcast, pitied, but shunned by all.- Chorus.
