Home By The Sea

There’s a lonely cottage by the sea side
Where the water lillies through the shore
It was there I passed my happy childhood
With a loved one that’s gone before

   Then give me back my dear old home
   That old home by the sea
   And I never will wander far away
   From my home my dear old cottage home

Many years have passed since there I wandered
But the old cottage has been forgot
And my heart in fancy oft returned
To that dear old familiar spot

Yes my heart is like the humming sea shell
That tells of its birth where ere it roams
I will sing of my cottage by the sea shore
Of my home my dear old cottage home
