The Girl I Left Behind Me.

I'm lonesome since I crossed the hills
And o'er the moor that's sedgy;
With heavy thoughts my mind is filled,
Since I have parted with Peggy.
Whene'er I turn to view the place,
The tears doth fall and blind me,
When I think on the charming grace
Of the girl I left behind me.

The hours I remember well,
When next to see doth move me;
The burning flames my heart doth tell,
Since first she owned she loved me.
In search of some one fair and gay,
Several doth remind me;
I know my darling loves me well,
Though I left her far behind me.

The bees shall lavish, make no store,
And the dove become a ranger;
The fallen water cease to roar,
Before I'll ever change her.
Each mutual promise faithfully made
By her whom tears doth blind me;
And. bless the hour I pass away
With the girl I left behind me.

My mind her image full retains,
Whether asleep or waking;
I hope to see my jewel again,
For her my heart is breaking.
But if ever I chance to go that way.
And that she has not resigned me,
I'll reconcile my mind and stay
With the girl I left behind me.
