There's an old broken lock on the old cabin door
The cracks and the holes in the old cabin floor
In my tumble down shack I long to go back
And dwell in that shack ever more

Peace, peace the Valley of peace
Where sorrows are known
Like a heaven, yes heaven it seems
Peaceful valley my home

Through an old broken window the lights I let shine
Twinkles and shines through the honeysuckle vine
By the old rustic well there's a sweet little Nell
And for me I know how she pines

* Refrain
