Abstract

VERSE 1
There’s a little brown road windin’ over the hill
To a little white cot by the sea;
There’s a little green gate
At whose trellis I wait,
While two eyes o’ blue
Come smilin’ through
At me!

VERSE 2
There’s a gray lock or two in the brown of the hair,
There’s some silver in mine, too, I see;
But in all the long years
When the clouds brought their tears,
Those two eyes o’ blue
Kept smilin’ through
At me!

VERSE 3
And if ever I’m left in this world all alone,
I shall wait for my call patiently;
For if Heaven be kind,
I shall wake there to find
Those two eyes o’ blue
Still smilin’ through
At me!
