"Jimmy Whalen" as written by and Peter/stookey Yarrow....
All alone as I walked by the banks of the river,
watching the moonbeams as ev'ning drew night.
All alone as I rambled I spied a fair damsel
weepin' and wailin' with many a sigh.

Weepin' for one who is now lyin' lonely,
mournin' for one who no mortal can save.
As the foaming dark waters flowed sadly about him,
onward they speed over young Jimmy's grave.

Oh Jimmy why can't you but tarry here with me,
not leave me alone distracted in pain.
But since death is the dagger that cut us asunder,
wide is the gulf, love, between you and I.

Ooooo...
All alone as I rambled I spied a fair damsel
weepin' and wailin' with many a sigh.
