Broadside ballad entitled ‘All Other Hearts Seem Glad but Mine’

Verse 1: ‘Long years have passed since we first met, / It breaks my heart to think of thee, / I am sure you cannot yet forget / The pleasant hours you spent with me. / Year after year glides swiftly past, / And not one word you’ve sent to me, / Clouds o’er my sunny path are cast, / My love has crossed the dark blue sea.’ This ballad was written by Mr J Macguire of Dundee, and was to be sung to the air ‘I’m lonely since my mother died’. It was published at 190 and 192 Overgate, Dundee, probably by the Poet’s Box. for more click here
