When I first come to this country 
In eighteen and forty-nine
I saw many fair lovers 
But I never saw mine
I viewed it all around me, 
Saw I was quite alone
And me a poor stranger 
And a long way from home

Well my true love
She won't have me
This I've come to understand
For she wants a free holder
But I have no land

I could not maintain her
With silver or with gold
And all of those pretty fine things
That my love's house could hold

Repeat last verse

Well, I wished I was a turtle dove
Had wings and could fly
Far away to my lover's lodgings 
Tonight I'd drawn nigh

And there in her lily white arms 
I'd lay there all night
And watch through them little winders 
For the dawning of light
