Lyrics

Come dwell, come dwell with me
And our home shall be, home shall be
A pleasant cot,
In a tranquil spot,
With a distant view of the changing sea,
My cottage is a magic scene,
The shelt'ring boughs seem ever green,
The streamlet as it flows along,
Is murmuring a fairy song,
The streamlet as it flows along,
Is murmuring a fairy song,
Come dwell with me,
Come, come, come, come,
Dwell with me,
Come dwell with me,
Come dwell, dwell with me.

The tendrils of a purple vine,
Around the rustic porch shall twine,
The woodbine and the wild rose flow'r,
Will make each casement seem a bow'r,
I will not let thee once regret
The gay saloons where first we met,
'Twill be my pride to hear thee say,
Love makes this valley far more gay,
'Twill be my pride to hear thee say,
Love makes this valley far more gay,
Then dwell with me,
Come dwell with me,
Come, come, come, come,
Dwell with me,
Dwell with me,
Come dwell, dwell with me.
