As I went out walkin' upon a fine day
I got awful lonesome as the day passed away
I sat there a-musing, alone on the grass
When who should sit by me but a pretty young lass
She sat down beside me and took hold of my hand
Said, «You sure be a stranger, and in a strange land.»
She asked me to marry and gave me her hand
Said, «My pappy's a chieftain all over this land.»
«My pappy's a chieftain, and ruler be he
I'm his only daughter and my name is Mohee»
I answered and told her that it never could be For I had my own sweetheart in my own country
I had my aen sweetheart, and I knew she loved me Her heart was as true as any Mohee
So I said, «I must leave you and it's goodbye my dear
There's wind in my canvas and it's home I must steer.»
At home with relations I tried for to see
But there wasn't a one like my little Mohee
And the one I had trusted proved untrue to me So I sailed o'er the ocean to my little Mohee
