OLD SIDELIXG HILL.
I bave wandered through many a valley,
And travelled o'er mountain and plain
But there is nothing my spirit can rally,
Like the birth of my own hills again.
I feel like a child, when I'm straying
By the side of each mountain rill
I think of the time I waa playing
Near ths foot of old Sideling Hill.
Hers the sun seems to shins mors brightly,
As It rises o'er the tall mountain top,
Like it shone when life set so plainly,
When my bosom was throbbing with hope.
I wish I had a cot near that fountain,
Where ths purest of water doth still j
I would meet a warm friend on ths mountain,
That would stop at old Sideling Hill.
There ths people are frank and kind-hearted,
With manners both simple and plain t
Often I think of the time ws all parted,
Ne'er to meet in this wide world again.
Tlio' most of my old friends havs squandered,
ihere are soma who are living there still t
And they'll welcome the one who has wandered,
When he comes to old Sideling Hill.
When Hived by that awift little river,
With kindred and friends I was blest,
And a good cause to me that I ever
Moved off to the far distant West.
When I left here in life's happy morning,
I had a certain foreboding of 111
Far better I had taken that warning,
And stayed at old Sideling Hill.
My locks are cow bleaching with sorrow,
My cheeks havs lost their ones rosy hue j
But I know if I die here to-morrow,
I'll die among ths friends that are true.
So pass round the bowl, boys, be merry,
And as the good liquor we'll fill,
My cheeks will grow red and cherry, .
As I drink to old Sideling Hill.
I am tired I am tired of roaming,
My heart is dreary and lone j
And I know the time is fast coming,
When I'll go to my long, silent home.
When my last day in life I shall number,
And bid earthly sorrows farewell,
Oh I then be the placs of my slumber,
IDs root of old Sideling Hill.
