When Jamie Comes Over the Sea.
Copyright, 1869, by John Keynton.
Words by John Keynton. Music by Charles K. Pratt.

When Jamie comes over the sea.
To fauld again to his heart;
How fond wi' that gentle heart be,
To know that we never s'all part.
For tho' he is roamin' afar,
I know that he will ne'er forget
The lassie he left long ago,
With sunny bright tears of regret.

So life may be weary and sad,
It makes little matter to me;
For, oh, my puir heart will be glad
When Jamie comes over the sea.

When Jamie comes over the sea,
He'll gie me the flow'r that I gave;
The gloamin' he parted from me,
To wander across the sad wave.
I greet for him earlie and late,
The lad that I ken is so true,
Oh, weary the moments have gane,
Since last time I bade him adieu.-Chorus.

When Jamie comes over the sea,
My heart will no longer be sore;
He's still all the world unto me,
The lad that I love and adore.
I'll welcome him hame with a kiss,
And never again s'all we part;
My dear sailor lad s'all ne'er miss
The lassie he keeps in his heart.-Chorus.
