E B7 E Oh I'll twine with my mingles and waving black hair B7 E With the roses so red and the lilies so fair A E And the myrtle so bright with the emerald dew B7 E The pale and the leader and eyes look like blue.
I will dance I will sing and my laugh shall be gay I will charm every heart in her crown I will sway When I woke from my dreaming my idols were clay All portions of love had all flown away.

Oh she taught me to love her and promised to love And to cherish me over all others above How my heart is now wondering no misery can tell She left me no warning no words of farewell.
Yes she taught me to love her and called me her flower That was blooming to cheer her through life's dreary hour Oh I long to see her and regret the dark hour She's gone and neglected her pale wildwood flower.
