Wild Mountain Flowers

print

We grew up living close to each other
Went to school sat side by side
And I longed for the day when I would ask her
If she would be my loving bride.

   I picked some wild mountain flowers for Mary
   And I told her I loved her today
   But she said we never could marry
   That her mother would stand in the way

Her daddy died when she was very young
And she never knew the love of a man
I tried so hard to make her happy
And tried to make her mother understand

Now my days of youth are gone and I’m so happy
And my time isn’t very far away
I pciked some wild mountain flowers for Mary
And placed them on her grave today

I picked some wild mountain flowers for Mary
And placed them on her grave today.
