I値l [A] twine 僧id the ringlets of my [E7] raven black [A] hair,

With the lilies so pale and the [E7] roses so [A] fair,

And the myrtle so bright with an [D] emerald [A] hue,

And the pale daisy with [E7] eyes of bright [A] blue.

 

He told me he loved me and [E7] promised to [A] love

Through ill and misfortune all [E7] others a-[A]-bove

Another has won him, ah [D] misery to [A] tell;

He left me in silence with no-[E7] word of fare-[A]-well.

 

I値l dance and I値l sing and my [E7] laugh shall be [A] gay.

I値l charm every heart in this [E7] crowd I sur-[A]-vey.

And I値l long to see him re-[D]-gret the dark [A] hour

When he壇 gone and neglected his [E7] pale wildwood [A] flower.

 

I値l [A] twine 僧id the ringlets of my [E7] raven black [A] hair,

With the lilies so pale and the [E7] roses so [A] fair,

And the myrtle so bright with an [D] emerald [A] hue,

And the pale daisy with [E7] eyes of bright [A] blue.
