Written and Composed by Arthur West.

At a pier in New York, just before she set sail,
Was a steamer preparing to weather the gale.
I stood and I heard two old friends say "good-bye,"
Tho' one, I could see. had a tear in his eye,
The other one, smiling, said, "Cheer up, old boy,
I'll soon send you tidings of comfort and joy;
Your luck will come soon, keep good level head!"
And the one that was left, to his friend quietly said:

When you see my dear old mother and my dear old dad,
Make their heart's feel glad-don't tell them that I'm sad;
Don't tell them that this money was the last I had;
Tell them I'm all right.

One more message now I want to give to you, Jack;
Tell sweet Eily O'Moore I'll be soon coming back;
If not, I will bring her right over the sea;
I'm true to her still; tell her be true to me.
Look! here is her keepsake I wear 'round my neck;
And if she were false, all my hopes it would wreck,
Tho' work and good money at present I lack;
And when on the old homestead, remember it. Jack:-Chorus.

Now the years passed away, I'd forgotten it all.
When in a great city I happened to call:
On business intent it was that brought me there,
And also in contact with that city's mayor.
At once I could see that I'd met him before;
It was the same boy who had stood by the shore;
His father And mother were with him that day-
Yes, he was the same boy, in New York, I heard say:-Chor.
