Representative Text

1 In the sky the bright stars glittered,
On the bank the pale moon shone;
And 'twas from Aunt Dinah's quilting party,
I was seeing Nellie home.

Refrain:
I was seeing Nellie home,
I was seeing Nellie home;
And 'twas from Aunt Dinah's quilting party,
I was seeing Nellie home.

2 On my arm a soft hand rested,
Rested light as ocean foam;
And 'twas from Aunt Dinah's quilting party,
I was seeing Nellie home. [Refrain]

3 On my lips a whisper trembled,
Trembled till it dared to come;
And 'twas from Aunt Dinah's quilting party,
I was seeing Nellie home. [Refrain]

4 On my life new hopes were dawning,
And those hopes have liv'd and grown;
And 'twas from Aunt Dinah's quilting party,
I was seeing Nellie home. [Refrain]
