You’re A Flower In The Wildwood

print

On one evening long ago when the sun was sinkin’ low
My true lover went to sail upon the sea
It was in the month of June when the roses were in bloom
That he took me in his arms and said to me

   You’re a flower bloomin’ in the wildwood
   A flower bloomin’ there for me
   Freer than the morning dew but I’ll soon return to you
   You’re a flower that is bloomin’ there for me

Then this message came to me from the captain on the sea
And it told me that my darling was dead
Oh this shocking words surprise brought the teardrops to my eyes
When I thought about the last words that I said

Now he can’t return to me he got drowned in the sea
And he’s past o’r life’s weary waves
When it’s in the month of June and the roses are in bloom
Oh it seems that I can hear my darling say
