The Widow in the Cottage by the Sea.

Just one year ago today, love,
I became your happy bride,
Changed a mansion for a cottage,
To dwell by the river side;
You told me I'd be happy,
But no happiness I see,
For to-night I am a widow
In the cottage by the sea.

Alone, all alone by the seaside he left me.
And no other's bride I'll be.
For in bridal flowers he decked me
In the cottage by the sea.

From my cottage by the seaside
I can see my mansion home;
I can see those hills and valleys,
Where with pleasure I have roamed;
The last time that I met him,
Oh, how happy then were we,
But to-night I am a widow
In the cottage by the sea.-Chorus.

Oh, my poor and aged father,
How In sorrow he would wail;
And my poor and aged mother,
How in tears her eyes would swell;
And my poor and only brother,
Oh, how he would weep for me,
If he only knew his sister
Was a widow by the sea.-Chorus.
