A flower blooming in the wildwood

On an evening long ago as the sun was sinking low
My true lover went to sail up in the sea
It was in the month of June when the roses were in bloom
When he tucked me in his arms and said to me

    You're a flower that is blooming in the wildwood
    A flower that is blooming there for me
    Sweeter than the morning dew and I'll soon return to you
    You're a flower that is blooming  there for me

Then a letter came to me from the captain on the sea
That told me my darling was dead
Oh hte shock and great surprise surprise made the teardrops dim my eye
When I thought about the last words that he said

 * Refrain

Now he can't return to me he got drowned in the sea
And has done passed over life's weary way
When it's in the month of June and the roses are in bloom
It seems that I can hear my lover say

 * Refrain
