I'll [C]twine 'mid the ringlets of my [G]raven black [C]hair,
The lilies so pale and the [G]roses so [C]fair.
The myrtle so bright with an [F]emerald [C]hue,
And the pale aronatus with [G]eyes of bright [C]blue.
I'll [C]sing and I'll dance, my [G]laugh shall be [C]gay.
I'll cease this wild weeping, drive [G]sorrow a-[C]way.
Though my heart is now breaking, he [F]never shall [C]know,
That his name made me tremble and my [G]pale cheek to [C]glow.
I'll [C]think of him never, I'll [G]be wildly [C]gay.
I'll charm every heart, and the [G]crowd I will [C]sway.
I'll live yet to see him re-[F]gret the dark [C]hour,
When he won, then neglected the [G]frail wildwood [C]flower.
He [C]told me he loved me, and [G]promised to [C]love.
Through ill and misfortune, all [G]others a-[C]bove.
Another has won him, ah, [F]misery to [C]tell;
He left me in silence, no [G]word of fare-[C]well.
He [C]taught me to love him, he [G]called me his [C]flower
That blossomed for him all the [G]brighter each [C]hour;
But I woke from my dreaming, my [F]idol was [C]clay;
My visions of love have all [G]faded a-[C]way.
