Down in a shady valley, Where sparkling waters steal, With ita and budding (lowers, Wai the home of Lucy Neat. Oh, fair young Neil, Oh, fair jounj; Lucj Ncal, The love I once did bear fer thec, I shall forever feel. Her Voice in low murmurs, The wounded heart to heal, And harshness never darkcd the brow Of mv gentle Lucy Oh she was like the glorious visions, That olt through slumbers steal, To light us to the brighter And such was Luc> Nt-al. And Lucy said her heart was mine. And her love did riot conceal; For pure and guileless were the lips, Of my faithful Neal. But there came a dashing soldier, All panoplied in steel, And the stern old father <_'ave him, His child, fa-rLucy Ntal. They bore her from my bosom, And that wound they cannot heal; For my heart, my heart, is breaking, For the love of" Lucy Neal. And tell her when 1 am dting.
