AMBER TRESSES TIED IN BLUE.
Far away in sunny meadows, where the merry sunbeams played.
Oft I lingered 'mid the clover, singing to a village maid;
She was fairer than the fairest, ever faithful, fond and true,
And the wore beneath a bonnet amber tresses tied In blue.
She was fairer than the fairest, ever faithful, fond and true.
And she wore beneath a bonnet amber tresses tied in blue.
Ere the Summer days departed, we had made a solemn vow,
And I never, never wearied kissing her sweet cheek and brow;
She was dearer than the dearest, pure as drops of morning dew.
And adown her neck was hanging amber tresses tied In blue.-Chorus.
'Twas decreed that fate should part as err the leaves of Autumn fell.
And two loving hearts were severed that had loved each other well;
She was all I had to cherish-she has bade a last adieu-
And I see in every vision amber tresses tied in blue. -Chorus.
