W: W:Chorus: W:Green grows the laurel and soft falls the dew, W:Sad was my heart when I parted from you, W:But in our next meeting I hope you'll prove true, W:Never change the green laurel for the red, white and blue. W: W:I wrote him a letter both loving and kind, W:He wrote me another in sharp bitter lines, W:Saying "Keep your love letters and I will keep mine, W:And you'll write to your love and I'll write to mine." W: W:Chorus W: W:He passed by my window both early and late, W:And the looks that he gave me would make your heart ache, W:The looks that he gave me ten thousand would kill, W:Wherever he wanders, he'll be my love still. W: W:Chorus W: W:I once was as happy as the red blushing rose, W:Now I am pale as the lily that grows, W:Like the tree in the garden with its beauty all gone, W:Can't you see what I've come to from the loving of one.
