Would've been better for us both had we never,
In this wide, wicked world had never met,
For the pleasures we've both seen together,
I am sure, love, I'll never forget.
Oh, I'm thinking tonight of my blue eyes,
Who is sailing far over the sea,
Oh, I'm thinking tonight of her only,
And I wonder if she ever thinks of me.
Oh, you told me once, dear, that you loved me,
You said that we never would part,
But a link in the chain has been broken,
Leaving me with a sad and aching heart.
When the cold, cold grave shall enclose me,
Won't you come, dear, and shed just one tear,
And say to the strangers around you,
A heart you have broken lies here.
