Sweet flowers

Darling, soon I will be sleeping in the churchyard over there
Where grass and flowers are growing and birds sing everywhere
Where the grass grows above me and spring flowers gentry wave
Will you do this, darling, plant sweet flowers on my grave

From you, sweetheart, I'm leaving your smile I'll never more see
Darling, don't grieve when we're parted, pretty flowers will speak to me
I will dream that you will be near me, as the blossoms gently wave
Will you do this, darling, plant sweet flowers on my grave

When the golden bond is broken, and they lay me down to sleep
This will be the only token of our love I will want to keep
That when I leave you, darling, this one little wish I crave
In memory of our love, dear, plant sweet flowers on my grave
