Take me back to the place where I first saw the light
To the sweet sunny south, take me home
Where the mockingbirds sing me to sleep every night
Oh why was I tempted to roam

Take me back to the place where the orange trees grow
To my plot in the evergreen shade
Where the flowers from river's green margins did grow
And spread their sweet scent through the glade

Take me back let me see what is left that I knew
Could it be that the old house is gone?
Dear friends from childhood indeed must be few
And I must face death all alone

Still the path to our cottage they say has grown green
And the place is quite lonesome around
And I know that the smiles and the forms I have seen
Now lie in the cold mossy ground
