(Barney Rush - Mild Music)
Of all the stars that ever shone
The wonders twinkle like your pale blue eyes
Like golden corn at harvest time your hair
Sailing in my boat the wind,
Gently blows and fills my sails,
Your sweet scented breath is everywhere.
Daylight peeping through the curtains,
Of the passing nightime is your smile,
The sun in the sky is like your laugh,
Come back to me my Nancy,
And linger for just a little while,
Since you left these shores I have no peace or joy.
No matter where I wander,
I'm still haunted by your name,
The portrait of your beauty stays the same,
Standing by the ocean,
Wondering where you've gone, if you'll return again,
Where is the ring I gave to Nancy Spain.
On a day in Spring,
Snow starts to melt and streams to flow,
With the birds I'll sing a song,
In a while I'll wander,
Down by bluebell grove, where wild flowers grow,
And hope that lovely Nancy will return.
