See That My Grave is Kept Green

 

When I am dead and gone from you darling

When I am laid away in my grave

When my spirit is gone to heaven above

To Him whom my soul will save

 

Oh the day will come to you darling

When no more on earth I'll be seen

There is one little wish darling grant me

See that my grave is kept green

 

When from this world I go

Leaving forever the scene

While others are dead oh will you then

See that my grave is kept green

Oh the hour of joy is passing

But alas how soon it will fade

Your glances of love are meeting my own

And sunlight will turn to shade

 

I shall never be happy again my love

Never be happy again

For a girl in her teens dont know what love means

I shall never be happy again
