In the Hazel-Dell my Nelly's sleeping-
Nelly, loved so long!
And my lonely, lonely watch I'm keeping,
Nelly lost and gone.
Here in moonlight often we have wandered
Through the silent shade;
Now where leafy branches drooping downward,
Little Nelly's laid.

All alone my watch I'm keeping,
In the Hazel-Dell;
For my darling Nelly's near me sleeping-
Nelly, dear, farewell!

In the Hazel-Dell my Nelly's sleeping,
Where the flowers wave;
And the silent stars are nightly weeping
O'er poor Nelly's grave.
Hopes that once my bosom fondly cherished,
Smile no more on me;
Every dream of joy, alas! has perished,
Nelly, dear, with thee.-Chorus.

Now I'm weary, friendless, and forsaken,
Watching here alone;
Nelly, thou no more wilt fondly cheer me
With thy loving tone.
Yet forever shall thy gentle image
In my memory dwell;
And my tears thy lonely grave shall moisten-
Nelly, dear, farewell!-Chorus.
