I once had a Sweet heart but now I have
none./ he is gone & left me & left me alone/
But since he has left me contended Ill be/.
he is loving a nother girl better than me/
Green grows the wild lillies & so does the
Rose/ its sad to your heart when parting with
yours/ I hope the next meeting we will
also prove true & change the green
Laurels to the red white & blue/.
She wrote me a letter all twinkling & twine/
I wrote him an ans on red roses line/
Saying keep your love letters & I will keep mine/
You write to your sweet heart & Ill write to
mine/ 3. Cho
He passed by my window both early & late/ the
looks that he gave me would make my heart
ache/ the looks that he gave me ten thousand
would kill/ he is loving another that makes
him quite Ill/
I ofttime have wondered how wimon loves
