Inscription: [on verso]: Chorus- / And its home deary home / And its home or ought to be / Its home deary home in the old country- / Where the oak and ash / And the bonny birchen tree / Are all growing green in the old country / Where the oak and ash / And the bonny birchen tree / Are all growing green in the old country- / Oh! I lived in an inn / In Rosemary lane / And gained the good will / Of the inmates within / Until there I pass I by / A sailor boy so bold / And that was the beginning / Of the sad tale to be told. / And when it got dark / The sailor boy grew tired / & asked for a candle / To light him to bed- / I gave him the candle / As an honest maid should / When he said and he swore / I should get to bed too.
