Wildwood Flower
A.P. Carter
adpt. Tony Rice

I will twine with my mingle of raven black hair
With the roses so red and the lilies so fair
And the myrtle so bright with it's emerald hue
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 his crown I will sway
When I 'woke from my dreaming my idol was clay
All portion of love had all flown away

Oh, he taught me to love him and promised to love
And cherish me over all others above
How my heart now is wond'ring no misery can tell
He's left with no warning, no word of farewell

He taught me to love him and called me his flow'r
That was blooming to cheer him through life's dreary hour
Oh, I long to see him and regret the dark hour
He's one that neglected this pale wildwood flower
