Wildwood Flower Lyrics

I will twine, I will mingle my raven black hair
With the roses so red and the lilies so fair
And the myrtle so bright with it’s emerald hue
The pale amanita and the hyssop so blue

…………..*…………..

I will dance, I will sing and my laugh shall be gay
I will charm every heart, in his crown I will sway
I woke from my dreaming, my idol was clay
All portions of loving had all flown away

…………..*…………..

But he taught me to love him and promised to love
And to cherish me over all others above
My poor heart is wondering no misery can tell
He left with no warning, no word of farewell

…………..*…………..

Well you told me you love me and called me your flower
That was blooming to cheer you through life’s dreary hour
I live to see him regret life’s dark hour
He’s gone and neglected this pale wildwood flower


I will twine and will mingle my raven black hair

With the roses so red and the lilies so fair

And the myrtle so green of an emerald hue

And the pale emanita and islip so blue

Oh he promised to love me, he promised to love

And cherish me always all others above

I woke from my dream and my idol was clay

My passion for loving had vanished away

Oh he taught me to love him, he called me his flower

A blossom to cheer him through life’s weary hour

But now he has gone and left me alone

The wild flowers to weep and the wild birds to moan

I’ll dance and I’ll sing and my life will be gay

I’ll banish this weeping, drive troubles away

I’ll live yet to see him regret this dark hour

When he won and neglected this frail wildwood flower.
