As I was a-walkin' upon a fine day|
I got awful lonesome as the day passed away
I sat down a-musing, alone on the grass
When who should sit by me but a sweet Indian lass.
2. She sat down beside me and took hold of my hand
3. "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
'Cause I had my own sweetheart in my own country.
4. I had my own sweetheart, and I knew she loved me
5. At home with relations I tried for to see|
But there wasn't a one like my little Mohee,
And the girl I had trusted proved untrue to me
So I sailed o'er the ocean to my little Mohee.
