Lyrics

Over yonder in the graveyard
Where the wild, wild flowers grow
Oh there they lay o'er my true lover (oh there they lay my own true lover)
She's gone from me forever more
Fairer than the sweetest flower
Restless as the wildest wind
Born with a love deep as the ocean
This was the girl that I did win
Left her there back in the mountains
To see the world, riches to gain
Oh when I returned no earthly treasures
Could ease this heart so full of pain

There so high upon that mountain
Beneath that little mound of clay
Oh, the girl that I returned to marry
So still among the flowers she lay
I'll go away and I will wander
Lay aside my earthly gain
Oh and I'll not end it, the man with riches

Undone in sorrow I remain
Undone in sorrow I remain
