26] A popular song by J. H. McNaughton (A Book of a Thousand Songs, ed. Albert E. Wier (Boston: Carl Fischer, 1918). Soon beyond the harbor bar, Shall my bark be sailing far, O'er the world I wander lone, Sweet Belle Mahone.
Sweet Belle Mahone! Sweet Belle Mahone! Wait for me at Heaven's gate, Sweet Belle Mahone! O'er thy grave I weep goodbye, Hear, O hear my lonely cry, I without thee what am I, Sweet Belle Mahone.
Lonely like a withered tree, What is all the world to me? Life and Light were all in thee, Sweet Belle Mahone.
Daisies pale are growing o'er All my heart can e're adore, Shall I meet thee never more, Sweet Belle Mahone. Back to Line
