The Girl I Left Behind Me


I'm lonesome since I crossed the hill
And o'er the moor and valley
Such heavy thoughts my heart do fill
Since parting from my Sally
I seek no more the fine and gay
For each doth but remind me
How swiftly passed the hours away
With the girl I left behind me.
I seek no more the fine and gay
For each doth but remind me
How swiftly passed the hours away
With the girl I left behind me.

Oh ne'er shall I forget that night
The stars were bright above me
And gently lent their silv'ry light
When first she vowed to love me
But now I'm bound for Brighton camp
Kind heaven then pray guide me
And send me safely back again
To the girl I left behind me.
But now I'm bound for Brighton camp
Kind heaven then pray guide me
And send me safely back again
To the girl I left behind me.

Her golden hair in ringlets fair
Her eyes like diamonds shining
Her slender waist, with carriage chaste
May leave the swain repining
Ye Gods above! Oh hear my prayer!
Thy beauteous fair to bind me
And send me safely back again
To the girl I left behind me.
Ye Gods above! Oh hear my prayer!
Thy beauteous fair to bind me
And send me safely back again
To the girl I left behind me.

Repeat first verse
