THERE'S A CORNER
FOR YOU AT MY
PRICE ONE PENNY.
Written by D. MILLIGan, sung T. BALL, of Dundee.
Copies of this can be had at the Pox Box, Overgat, Dundee.
One day while walking down the street, an old pal I
I scarcely would have known him, for he looked so ill
And as he grasped me by the hand, these words to me
Dear Jim, I don't know what to do, for all I loved
I told him to keep up his heart, and as I turned away,
A shilling I placed into his hand, and these words to
him did say?
Come in the morning, come at night
Come in the eve when the moon shines bright.
Come at noontide, come when you will,
There's a corner for yon at my fireside ssill,
How oft we meet a young man, wreck'd on the sea of
Who'd done his best to keep afloat, and avoid all care
Been wreck'd upon life's hidden rocks, and all his bright
How oft he's whisper'd to himself, I wish that I were
Let's try and lend a helping hand, when we find a firend
And whisper this into his car, 'twill eheer his sinking
Now, sad's the loss of life that's been, around our coast
And many a widow now does mourn her husband's crul
We should try and do the best we can to help them in
I don't think that Dundoe will be the last to give her
To help those helpless orphents let's show a Christian
And find a corner for them at our fireside still. Chorus-
