Faded Flowers

G ~ D - G

[G]The flowers I saw in the wildwood

Have since dropped their beautiful leaves

And the many dear friends of my childhood

Have [D]slumbered many [D7]years in their [G]graves

 

But the bloom of the flowers I remember

Though their smiles I may never more see

For the cold chilly winds of December

Stole my flowers' companions from me

 

It's no wonder that I'm broken hearted

And stricken with sorrow should be

For we have met we have loved we have parted

My flowers companions and me

+ G ~ D - G

 

How dark looks this world and how dreary

When we part from the ones that we love

There is rest for the faint and the weary

And friends to meet with loved ones above

 

For in heaven I can but remember

When from earth my soul shall be free

There no cold chilly winds of December

Shall steal my companions from me

+ G ~ D - G
