Darling Daisies


When [A]first I met my darling [D]daisies

[E]down by the garden [A]wall,

I was walking along the street so [D]shady,

I was [E]going for a [E7]twilight [A]call.


I’d [A]love to sing and dance among the [D]roses [E]down by the garden [A]wall,

‘tis there I'd like to meet my [D]daisies, [E]when I make a [E7]twilight [A]call.


She was sleeping in a bed of roses,

dreaming of the by and by,

while the little birds around were singing,

up above the branches so high. 




If you want to see a bright-eyed beauty,

bright as the stars that shine,

just come and go with me some evening,

to see that pretty girl of mine.   


+ CHORUS
