Dan and Teddie's Parting.

I am bidding you good-bye, Dan, dear,
I'm going far away,
I'm leaving Ireland far behind,
Going to America-
Thin you be good to mother, Dan,
And little Patsey, too,
I'll get work in America,
And send for all of you.

Good-bye, Daniel, dear-
Teddie, are you leaving?
Let your heart be of good cheer,
And try and not be grieving.
Bear this parting like a man-
Teddie, I will try;
Good-bye, Daniel-farewell, Teddie,

Our home will be a sad one,
Whin you have gone away,
And we will watch until a letter
Comes across the sea.
And mother says her prayer shall be,
God speed her own son, Ted;
Yes, you'll be always in our mind,
Each day we break our day.-Chorus.

So now I must be leaving you-
But, oh! it won't be long-
I'll save up every cent I earn,
For I am young and strong.
And whin I reach America,
I'll soon be sending home
The money for my brother Dan,
To come across the foam.-Chorus.
