1st Verse
I'll[C]twine[F]'mid the[C]ringlets of my[G7]raven black[C]hair
The[C]li-[F]lies so[C]pale and the[G7]roses so[C]fair,
The[C]myrtle so bright with an[F]emerald[C]hue,
And the[C]pale aronatus with[G7]eyes of bright[C]blue
2nd Verse
I'll[C]sing[F]and I'll[C]dance, my[G7]laugh shall be[C]gay
I'll[C]cease[F]this wild[C]weeping drive[G7]sorrow a-[C]way
Tho' my[C]heart is now breaking, he[F]never shall[C]know
That his[C]name made me tremble and my[G7]pale cheeks to[C]glow
3rd Verse
I'll[C]think[F]of him[C]never I'll[F7]be wildly[C]gay
I'll[C]charm[F]ev'ry[C]heart, and the[G7]crowd I will[C]sway
I'll[C]live yet to see him, re-[F]gret the dark[C]hour
When he[C]won, then neglected, the[G7]frail wildwood[C]flower
4th Verse
He[C]told[F]me he[C]loved me, and[G7]promis'd to[C]love
Trough[C]ill[F]and mis-[C]fortune, all[G7]others a-[C]bove
An-[C]other has won him, ah,[F]misery to[C]tell
He[C]left me in silence, no[G7]word of fare-[C]well
5th Verse
He[C]taught[F]me to[C]love him, he[G7]call'd me his[C]flower
That[C]blos-[F]som'd for[C]him all the[G7]brighter each[C]hour
But I[C]woke from my dreaming, my[F]idol was[C]clay
My[C]visions of love have all[G7]faded a-[C]way
