The Quilting Party

Album: Log Cabin Favorites (1881)
  • In the sky the bright stars glittered
    On the bank the pale moon shone
    And 'twas from Aunt Dinah's quilting party
    I was seeing Nellie home

    I was seeing Nellie home
    I was seeing Nellie home
    And 'twas from Aunt Dinah's quilting party
    I was seeing Nellie home

    On my arm a soft hand rested
    Rested light as ocean foam
    And 'twas from Aunt Dinah's quilting party
    I was seeing Nellie home

    I was seeing Nellie home
    I was seeing Nellie home
    And 'twas from Aunt Dinah's quilting party
    I was seeing Nellie home

    On my lips a whisper trembled
    Trembled till it dared to come
    And 'twas from Aunt Dinah's quilting party
    I was seeing Nellie home

    I was seeing Nellie home
    I was seeing Nellie home
    And 'twas from Aunt Dinah's quilting party
    I was seeing Nellie home

    On my life new hopes were dawning
    And those hopes have liv'd and grown
    And 'twas from Aunt Dinah's quilting party
    I was seeing Nellie home

    I was seeing Nellie home
    I was seeing Nellie home
    And 'twas from Aunt Dinah's quilting party
    I was seeing Nellie home Lyrics from a song in Public Domain
