Lottie lies among the flowers
Gazing at the clouds above
Spying castles, walls and towers
Dreaming quiet thoughts of love

Paddy sails upon the ocean
For to make his fortune there
In the hope of soon returning
To his waiting lady fair

Refrain
She dreams, she wanders
He seems so far away
She waits, she ponders
Thinking of the day

Lottie watches from the windows
Lottie leans upon the door
Ever roaming through the meadows
Ever walking down the shore

Many years of silent sorrow
Many young men come and gone
Lottie lies alone in winter
Just a shadow pale and drawn

Torn and tattered, wind and weathered
Comes a vessel to the bay
Bringing home a loyal sailor
Shrouded in a cloth of gray

Refrain
She dreams, she wanders
He seems so far away
She waits, she ponders
Thinking of the day

Lottie lies among the flowers
Growing in the ground above
Satisfied to spend the hours
Sleeping quiet with her love

Lottie lies among the flowers
Sleeping quiet with her love
