Words and Music by Bonnie Thornton.

Of all the dainty maidens that you've heard about in song
I've got the sweetest little girl in all the throng.
Her eye reflects her loving heart, there's sunshine in her smile;
Since I met Nellie I am happy all the while.

For I'm the boy for Nellie, and Nellie she suits me,
So, like an angel in her sweet simplicity.
Her smile is ever sunny, she's all on earth I prize;
If there is a Heaven, I have seen it in her eyes.

Her cheeks are like twin roses In the splendor of their bloom,
And fairest flowers seem to envy their perfume;
But when she said, "Jim, I am yours," I heard love's sweetest tune;
Then I kissed Nellie dear beneath the harvest moon.- Chorus.
