Words and Music by Geo. Evans.

Standing at a cottage window, in a village by the sea,
Is a fair-haired little maiden, wond'ring where her love can be;
he had promised that he'd meet her at the closing of the day,
And while waiting for his coming, oft we heard the maiden say:

Johnnie, Johnnie, Johnnie, come back to me;
Johnnie, Johnnie, how my heart yearns for thee.
Johnnie, Johnnie, happy again I'll be
When you return to your sweetheart from over the deep blue sea.

Tears have passed since last they parted in that village by the sea,
Now the lass is broken-hearted, wond'ring where her love can be;
She still watches for her laddie, but he'll ne'er return again;
Ev'ry day you'll bear the maiden singing o'er this sad refrain: - Cho.
