Words by George W. Chance. Music by Charles Coleman.

A quiet country village in the far-off sunny South,
A cottage holds within a shady dell,
Where lived a maid with wavy hair, whose face was fair to see,
The folks for miles around all loved her well.
No sorrow ever seemed to mar the sunshine of her life,
Her smile was sweeter than the flowers of May.
A stranger from the city came and lured her from her home,
To brother Tom the mother then did say:

Go and find your sister, Tom, and bring her back once more,
Tell her that we've missed her as she ne'er was missed before.
Tell her that the roses bloom and birds sing just as gay,
Still home don't seem the same to us since Bessie went away.

He found her in a city strange, she had been cast away,
Deserted by her husband, left to roam.
Her thoughts were of the cottage still that stood down in the dell.
Of mother and the friends she'd left at home.
He said to her, dear Bessie, I have come to bring you back,
The past we'll think no more of, it is dead.
Your pride it need not bar you, for your friends will love you still,
So do come home for mother's sake, who said:-Refrain.
