Do They Think of Me at Home?

Music with Piano-Forte accompaniment, published by Messrs. FIRTH, POND & CO., 547 Broadway, New York.

Do they think of me at home,
Do they ever think of me?
I who shared their grief,
I who mingled in their glee;
Have their hearts grown cold and strange
To the one now doomed to roam,
i would give the world to know
Do they think of me at home?
I would give the world to know,
Do they think of me at home?

Do they think of me at eve?
Of the songs I used to sing?
Is the harp I struck untouched,
Does a stranger wake the string?
Will no kind, forgiving word
Come across the raging foam?
Shall I never cease to sigh,
"Do they think of me at home?"

Do they think of how I loved
In my early days?
Do they think of him who came,
But could never win their praise?
I am happy by his side,
And from mine he'll never roam,
But my heart will sadly ask,
Do they think of me at home?
