Words and music by Curtis A. Duval.

Think of the rose, of the lily, dwell on their beauty alone,
Think of the stars, of the fading twilight, of the harp and its beautiful tone;
The flowers and their perfumes are like her, how sweet she is I'll never tell,
I fain would find words to describe her, my little sweetheart Nell.

My little sweetheart Nell, there's no fairer one than you.
My heart is in thy keeping, whilst, thou he ever true,
Soon I will take thee away, And in a shady dell,
I'll build a little home for thee, my little sweetheart Nell.

Dreams of the future come o'er me, dreams of the joy yet in store, [adore:
Dreams of those blue eyes And dark curly hair, dreams of Nellie, the one I
The day is now swiftly approaching, with Joyfulness doth my heart swell,
For soon I will wed her, my darling, my little sweetheart Nell.- Refrain.

One balmy ev'ning in springtime, down by a smooth flowing stream,
There I first met her, my dear little Nell, there I whispered to her
love's sweet dream,
How pleasant to us were those meetings, far down 'mong the flow'rs in the dell
'Twas there that I won her, my darling, my little sweetheart Nell. - Refrain.
