Darling Nellie Across The Sea

print

Oh the night was dark and stormy
When this message came to me
It was from my darlin’ Nellie
Who had sailed across the sea

I was wanderin’ through the grave yard
When I found where Nellie lay
It was there my heart was broken
It was there I knelt to pray

But remember; darlin’ Nellie
There’s a home for us on high
I will meet you darlin’ Nellie
When they lay me down to die
