Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 46
SHE'S COMING, AFTER ALL.
Copyright, 1894, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words and Music by Charles Graham,
My Nellie dear is coming from the old spot far away,
She's coming here to wed me, though they tried to make her stay;
Before I left, five years ago, she said, "I'll join you, Dan;
I'll wait here till you write that you're an independent man."
She's sailing, she's sailing from over the water to meet me;
Sweet Nellie Kelly is coming at my call;
Nellie, my darling, I'm patiently waiting to greet thee-
I always knew that she would be true, and she's coming, after all.
I've robbed them of a jewel if she's as she used to be;
Her parents said I was no good-they never cared for me;
But Nellie said she'd stick to me, whatever might befall;
They could not keep her from me, And she's coming, after a\\.-Refrain.
The place is neat and dainty I have furnished for my pearl;
As nice a little home us ever held an Irish girl;
I have not told her half the things for her I've put away;
She'll find surprises, all around, upon our wedding day.-Refrain.
