  1. The morn was fair, the skies were clear,
    No breath came o'er the sea
    When Mary left her hielan cot
    And wandered forth with me.
    Though flowers decked the mountainside
    And fragance filled the vale,
    By far the sweetest flower there
    Was the rose of Allendale.
    'Twas the rose of Allendale
    'Twas the rose of Allendale,.
    By far the sweetest flower there
    Was the rose of Allendale.
  2. Where e'er I wandered east or west
    Though fate began to laur,
    A solace still was she to me
    In sorrows lonely hour.
    When tempest lashed our gallant bark
    And winters shivering sail,
    One maiden form withstood the storm
    The rose of Allendale.
    'Twas the rose of Allendale
    'Twas the rose of Allendale,.
    By far the sweetest flower there
    Was the rose of Allendale.
  3. And when my fevered lips were parched
    On Afric's burning sand,
    She whispered hopes of happiness
    And tales of distant lands.
    My life has been a wilderness
    And blessed by fortunes gails,
    Had fate not linked my love to hers
    The rose of Allendale.
    'Twas the rose of Allendale
    'Twas the rose of Allendale,.
    By far the sweetest flower there
    Was the rose of Allendale.
