I'm Thinking Tonight of My Blue Eyes

'Twould been better for us both had we 4 never
In this 5 wide, wicked world, had never 1 met
For the pleasure we both seemed to 4 gather
I'm 5 sure, love, I'll never for- 1 get

Oh, I'm thinking tonight of my blue eyes
Who is sailing far over the sea
Oh I'm thinking tonight of him only
And I wonder if he ever thinks of me

Oh, you told me once, dear, that you loved me
You vowed that we never would part
But a link in the chain has been broken
Leaving me with a sad and aching heart

When the cold, cold grave shall enclose me
Will you come dear, and shed just one tear
Will you say to the strangers around you
A poor heart you have broken lies here
