Lyrics

I'm dreaming now of Hally
Sweet Hally (sweet Hally)
I'm dreaming now of Hally
For the thought of her is one that never dies

She's sleeping in the valley
The valley (the valley)
She's sleeping in the valley
And the mocking bird is singing where she lies

Listen to the mocking bird (listen to the mocking bird)
The mocking bird still sings over her grave
Listen to the mocking bird (listen to the mocking bird)
Still singing where the weeping willows wave

Ah! Well, I remember
Remember (remember)
Ah! Well, I remember
When we gathered cotton
Side by side...

T'was in the middle of September
September (September)
T'was in the middle of September
And the mocking bird was singing far and wide

Listen to the mocking bird (listen to the mocking bird)
The mocking bird still sings over her grave
Listen to the mocking bird (listen to the mocking bird)
Still singing where the weeping willows wave

When the charms of Spring awaken
Awaken (awaken)
When the charms of Spring awaken
And the mocking bird is singing on the bough

I feel like one forsaken
Forsaken (forsaken)
I feel like one forsaken
For my Hally is no longer with me now

Listen to the mocking bird (listen to the mocking bird)
The mocking bird still sings over her grave
Listen to the mocking bird (listen to the mocking bird)
Still singing where the weeping willows wave

Listen to the mocking bird (listen to the mocking bird)
The mocking bird still sings over her grave
Listen to the mocking bird (listen to the mocking bird)
Still singing where the weeping willows wave....
