Seeds of Love

  D               A7 D
I sowed the seeds of love
I sowed them in the springtime
Gathered them up in the morning so soon
G                 D                 G D A7 D
While small birds sweetly sing (2x)

My garden was planted well
With flowers everywhere
I had not the liberty to choose for myself
The flower I held most dear

The gardener standing by
Three flowers he gave to me
He gave me the violet, the lily and the pink
But I refused all three

The violet I did not like
Because it fades so soon
The lily and the pink I did overthink
And vowed I would wait til June

For in June is the red, red rose
And that's the flower for me
Ofttimes Have I plucked that red rosy bush
And gained a willow tree

Now the willow tree may twist
And the willow tree may twine
I wish I was lying in that young woman's arms
That once held this heart of mine
