Green Grows the Laurel
Music from Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House Books

Lyrics by Anonymous

I once had a sweetheart
But now I've got none
She's gone and she's left me
To weep and to moan
She's gone and she's left me
But contented I'll be
For I'll get another one
Better than she

Chorus:
So green grows the laurel
And so does the rue
So woeful, my love, at the parting with you
But by our next meeting
Our love we'll renew
We'll change the green laurel
To the orange and blue

She wrote me a letter
Four red rosy lines
She wrote me another
All twisted in twines
Keep your love letter
And I will keep mine
And write to your sweetheart
And I'll write to mine

Chorus

She passes my window
Both early and late
And the looks that she gives me
They make my heart break
And the looks that she gives me
A thousand times over
"You are the sweetheat
I once did adore"

Chorus

I oftentimes do wonder
Why young maids love men
I oftentimes do wonder
Why young men love them
But by my experience
I now ought to know
Young maids are deceivers
Wherever they go

Chorus
