Words And music by Austin Walsh.

Far from the gay bustling city, mid sweets of calm country life,
Fondly beat two hearts together, the sweetheart who soon would be wife;
Love's quarrel was just then a-brewing, no pleading to reason would bring,
In rage, while the storm was ensuing, Nell gave and he took back the ring.

You'll come back, my boy Jack,
Back to the girl you love, the girl who loves you;
When away you'll surely say
Sorry that I left you, Nell, my sorrow I can't tell,
So I say that you'll come back, my boy Jack.

Poor Jack soon made his departure, none glad to bid him good-bye,"
Tears filled the eyes of the friendly, dear Nell just breathed forth a sigh;
His mother, the sweetest of women, who anxiously watched their love-match,
Forgive Jack, she said, And be human, And sang as he left his home thatch.

Years passed though Jack kept a-roving, no place was joy to remain,
Last in despair came-returning, the first love he still did retain;
In vain at his home did he seek her, then friendless his warm heart did chill.
While searching in graveyard he found her, a little green mound on the hill.
