Wandering Refugee.

Farewell, mother, home and friends!
We may never meet again—
Soon ’mid stangers I must roam:
Oh! the parting gives me pain—
Tho’ I wander far away,
Lonely o’er life’s stormy sea,
Who will shed one gentle tear
For a Wandering Refugee?
Who will shed a gentle tear
For a Wandering Refugee?

Farewell, sunny Southern home.
Home I always loved so true—
Oft will tear-drops dim mine eyes,
When my mem’ry flies to you
But the happy scenes of yore,
I, alas! will never see—
I’ll be roaming far away,
A lonely Wandering Refugee!
I’ll be roaming far away,
A lonely Wandering Refugee I
