We Crossed the Atlantic Together.
Copyright, 1894, by George E. Peters.
Words and Music by George E. Peters.
Arranged by Miss May E. Smith.

You ask to know how first I met sweet Maggie while at sea-
Deep in my mem'ry linger yet those days so dear to me:
On deck, one day, a fair, young maid stood weeping and alone:
I gently asked what troubles weighed-what loss did she bemoan.

Strangers at first, but lovers at last, we crossed the Atlantic together:
Happy are we, forgetting the past-all sunshine, with no cloudy weather.
When lovely Maggie becomes my wife, we'll cross the storm-beaten sea of life;
Love lands us ashore, quite safe as of yore, when w e crossed the Atlantic together.

The pretty maiden sobbed and sighed as tho' her heart would break;
Her father had but, lately died aboard the good ship Flake;
She was a lonely orphan maid, without one trusting friend;
I kindly proffered her my aid until the journey's end.- Chorus.

As time went on, we met again, quite warm our friendship grew;
Mere friends not long did we remain till we were lovers true.
The good ship brought us safe ashore, we parted for a time.
But soon we'll meet to part no more, sweet Maggie will be mine-Chorus.
