Words by Oliver Collins. Music by Geo. Cantlis

In a far-off, smiling valley, where the green-clad hills look down
On the fairest home in all that country side.
Lived a tender little maiden fair, with laughing eyes of brown,
Who promised long ago to be my bride;
Oh! how pleasant are the mem'ries of those well-remembered hours,
When arm in arm and heart to heart we strayed,
Whilst the running brook below us seemed to murmur to the flow'rs
The same sweet song my voice to her conveyed.

Oh! sweetheart mine, dear sweetheart mine.
I will love you while the stars above shall shine,
For your loving eyes so tender and your sunny smile divine.
Have won my heart forever, sweetheart mine.

In that far-off, smiling valley bloom the roses as of yore.
But the sunshine has all vanished from the scene,
For my sweetheart's laughing eyes of brown will sparkle nevermore,
And nevermore she'll grace the village green.
Fdr they've laid her in her last long sleep, where falls the rain and dew,
On the hillside where we often used to stray,
And I see no Joy in living, for my heart lies burled, too.
With the form of her to whom I used to say:-Refrain.
