Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 47
JESSIE OF SWEET ABERDEEN.
Copyright, 1895, by Spaulding A Gray.
Words and Music by Charles Graham.
She's coming from Scotland, the land of the thistle, Jessie of sweet Aberdeen,
And safely, at last, in my arms she will nestle, Jessie of sweet Aberdeen;
We rambled together among the broad highlands,
Jessie and I, in the days long ago;
We both were sad-hearted the day that we parted,
But I knew she loved me, she told me so.
Jessie of sweet Aberdeen, a fairer lass never was seen;
No longer she'll tarry, and soon I shall marry Jessie of sweet Aberdeen.
She could not forget me, she said in her letler, Jessie of sweet Aberdeen;
She'll come to her Jamie, for worse or for better, Jessie of sweet Aberdeen;
She'll be a bright gem in the home I've made for her;
I long for her coming, my dear highland queen;
My heart will be lighter, the world will be brighter,
With my little Jessie of Aberdeen.- Chorus.
