Wildwood Flower

Johnny Cash

 EBE
 EBE
 Oh I'll twine with my mingles and waving black hair
 BE
With the roses so red and the lilies so fair
 AE
And the myrtle so bright with the emerald dew
 BE
The pale and the leader and eyes look like blue.

I will dance I will sing and my laugh shall be gay
I will charm every heart in her crown I will sway
When I woke from my dreaming my idols were clay
All portions of love had all flown away.

 EBE
 GDG
 GDG
 Oh she taught me to love her and promised to love
 DG
And to cherish me over all others above
 CG
How my heart is now wondering no misery can tell
 DG
She left me no warning no words of farewell.

Yes she taught me to love her and called me her flower
That was blooming to cheer her through life's dreary hour
Oh I long to see her and regret the dark hour
She's gone and neglected her pale wildwood flower.

 GDG
