Flowers in the Valley

Flowers in the Valley

There was a woman, oh but she was a widow
        Fair as the flowers in the valley
With a daughter as fair as a fray sunny meadow
        The red and the green and the yellow

Ch.:    No harp, no lute, nor pipe nor flute nor cymbal
        As sweet grows the treble violin

This maiden so fair and the flower so rare
        Together they grew in the valley
Oh, then came this knight all dressed in red
        Fair as the flowers in the valley
"Thou art my bride ?I'll say? thou as thee said"
        The red and the green and the yellow

"Oh no" said she "Oh thou'st never win me"
        As fair as the flowers in the valley
Oh, then came this knight all dressed in green
        Fair as the flowers in the valley
"Thou must be, I see thou as my queen"
        The red and the green and the yellow

"Oh no" said she "Oh thou'st never win me"
        As fair as the flowers in the valley
Oh, then came this knight all dressed in yellow
        Fair as the flowers in the valley
"Thou art my love and my bride" said he
        The red and the green and the yellow

"I'll come" said she "I'll go with thee"
        Farewell to the flowers in the valley
