"I drempt I was in Heaven,
Among the angels fair;
I’d hear, seen, none so handsome
That twine in golden hair.
They looked so neat and sang so sweet
And play’d the golden harp.
I was about to pick an angel out
And take her to my heart;
But the moment I began to plea
I thought of you my love,
There was none I’d seen so beautifull
On Earth or Heaven above.
Goodbye my dear wife and mother,
Also my sisters
