Kiss My Dear Old Mother, Jack.
Copyright, 1892, by Fank Tousey.
By George Bruce and Felix McGlennon.
Sung by Helene Mora.

Far away from dear Columbia, In a land across the foam.
Lies a mother's darling dying, for from kindred friends And home,
And his comrade kneels beside him, with the teardrops in his eye,
List'ning to the poor lad's message as he says the last good-bye.

Kiss my dear old mother. Jack, and say it came from me,
The boy who ran away from home MM went across the sea;
Ask her to forgive me Jack, her wild and erring lad,
And say that I died with a prayer on my lips for her and dad.

Ah! the day I well remember that I ran away to sea;
Dad and I had hotly quarreled, and in passion he struck me:
I struck him back, oh, heaven forgive me! to the docks I made my way,
Stowed myself on board a vessel that was due to sail that day.- Chorus.

Bear the message to my mother, how I died a life to save;
How I snatched a helpless Infant from a cruel fiery grave-
An humble cottage fiercely burning, a frantic mother shrieking wild;
'Mongst the flames I dashed like lightning, gave my life but saved the child- Cho.
