All alone as I walked by the banks of the river Watching the moonbeams as evening drew nigh. All alone as I rambled I spied a fair damsel Weepin' and wailin' with many a sigh. Weepin' for one who is now lyin' lonely Mournin' for one who no mortal can save. As the foaming dark waters flowed sadly about him Onward they speed over young Jimmy's grave. Oh Jimmy why can't you but tarry here with me Not leave me alone distracted in pain But since death is the dagger that cut us asunder Wide is the gulf, love, between you and I. All alone as I rambled I spied a fair damsel Weepin' and wailin' with many a sigh.
