Abstract

Oh memry sweetly thou recall'st
Bright visions of the past
Again the joys of youth are mine
The brightest still the last
Again I through the pleasant fields and flowry valleys roam
I see the clust'ring woodbine twine
Around my lowland home

CHORUS
My lowland home
Around my lowland home
I see the clust'ring woodbine twine
Around my lowland home
My lowland home my lowland home
I see the clust'ring woodbine twine
Around my lowland home.

The gray thatched roof, the low white wall
The gently sloping hill
The steam that leaves its grassy bank
And turns the neighb'ring mill
The yellow broom and snow white thorn
The cat'ract's dashing foam
The daisy scatter'd meads that skirt
My happy lowland home

CHORUS

Vice flies the peaceful hallowed spot
It dares not enter there
For sweet ascends the evening hymn
And morning's offered prayer
And joys unknown in halls of pride
Or splendor's lofty dome
Encircle still Earth's sweetest spot
My own dear lowland home

CHORUS
