Farewell! mother dear, I go
Where loved ones never can be parted
We will meet again I know;
Be not weeping and down hearted.
Last night I dreamed of thee
Saying pleasant things to me;
Still again those vigils keep
While I lay me gently down to sleep.
Refrain:
Oh! Farewell, mother dear, I go
Where loved ones never can be parted.
We will meet again I know;
Be not weeping and down hearted.
Weep not mother dear for me
When I’m laid underneath the willow;
I’ll keep guard upon thy soul:
Thou hast guarded o’er my pillow.
Far in a radiant land
I will join a sister band
They are singing a sweet refrain
I am called: Farewell! we meet again.
Refrain:
