Wildwood Flower
Oh, I will twine with my mingle and waving dark hair
Roses so red and the lilies so fair
With myrtle so bright with its emerald dew
The pale and the leader and eyes look like blue

I will dance, I will sing, and my life shall be gay
I shall charm every heart and each crown I shall sway
When I woke from my dream the old idols were clay
Ocean above him had all gone away

Oh, he taught me to love him and promised to love
And to cherish me over all others above
Oh, how my heart is no one to be, no misery can tell
Left me no warning, no words of farewell

Oh, he taught me to love him, he called me his flower
It was blooming to cheer him through life's weary hour
Oh, how I long to see the man regret the dark hour
He's gone and neglected his pale wildwood flower
