Dr. Thomas Dunn and Nelson Kneass, 1848
Oh don't you remember sweet Alice, Ben Bolt|
Sweet Alice whose hair was so brown
Who wept with delight when you gave her a smile
And trembled with fear at your frown.
2. In the old church yard in the valley, Ben Bolt
3. Under the hickory tree, Ben Bolt
4. The mill wheel has fallen to pieces, Ben Bolt|
The rafters have tumbled in
And a quiet that crawls 'round the walls as you gaze
Has followed the olden din.
5. And don't you remember the school, Ben Bolt
6. Grass grows on the master's grave, Ben Bolt
