Here you will find the Poem Carrie Monro of poet Julia A Moore
Air -- "Belle Mahone" Once there was a lady fair, With black eyes and curly hair, She has left this world of care, Sweet Carrie Monro. CHORUS: Sweet Carrie Monro, Dear Carrie Monro, And her friends will not forget Sweet Carrie Monro. Now those friends miss Carrie here, For she was loved both far and near, She has left them all in tears, Sweet Carrie Monro. Carrie's age was twenty-three, A married lady, too, was she -- A mournful parting had to be, From Carrie Monro. It's just before her spirit fled Her husband stood by her bed; "Prove faithful, birdie, to me," said Sweet Carrie Monro. Sad will memory pass o'er That loved form that is no more -- She's waiting on the other shore, Loved Carrie Monro.
