Wildwood Flower
by June Carter Cash



I will twine with my mingles and waving black hair
With the roses so red and the lilies so fair
And the myrtle so bright with the emerald dew
The pale and the leader and eyes look like blue

I will dance, I will sing and my life shall be gay
I will charm every heart, in his crown I will sway
When I woke from my dreaming, my idols was clay
All portions of love had all flown away

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

Oh he taught me him love me and called me his flower
That was blooming to cheer him through life's dreary hour
How I long to see him and regret this dark hour
He's gone and neglected this pale wildwood flower
