Sweet fern

Springtime is coming sweet lonesome bird
Your echo in the woodland I hear
Down in the meadow so lonesome your singing
While the moonlight is shining so clear
But I know he's away in a far distant land
A land that is over the sea
Go fly to him singing your sweet little song
And tell him to come back to me

    Sweet fern, sweet fern
    Oh tell me, is my darlign still true
    Sweet fern, sweet fern
    I'll be just as happy as you

Oh tell me sweet fern, is he thingking of me
And the promise he made long ago
He said he'd return from over the sea
Oh why do the years go so slow
But I know he's away in a far destant land
A land that is over the sea
Go fly to him singing your sweet little song
And tell him to come back to me

 * Refrain

Upon my finger he placed a small ring
On the day he was leaving his home
I promised I'd be his own little girl
And love him wherever he'd roam
But I know he's away in a far distant land
A land that is over the sea
Go fly to him singing your sweet little song
And tell him to come back to me
