Green Grow the Lilacs

Wiki article Green Grow the Lilacs


      G                                     C                     G
Oh, Green grow the lilacs, all sparkling with dew
     G             G7                A7              D7
I'm lonely, my darling, since parting with you;
      G               G7            C                  G
But by our next meeting I'll hope to prove true
       D                      G7              D7                  G
And change the green lilacs to the Red, White and Blue.


   G                                        C                 G
I once had a sweetheart, but now I have none
          G                    G7           A7             D7
She's gone and she's left me, I care not for one
         G                     G7                C               G
Since she's gone and left me, con - tent - ed I'll be,
       D               G                D7             G
For she loves a - noth -er one better than me.


I passed my love's window, both early and late
The look that she gave me, it makes my heart ache;
Oh, the look that she gave me was painful to see,
For she loves another one better than me.


I wrote my love letters in rosy red lines,
She sent me an answer all twisted and twined;
Saying,"Keep your love letters and I will keep mine
Just you write to your love and I'll write to mine.
