Amber Tresses

Amber Tresses
(A.P. Carter)

Far away in sunny mountains
Where the merry sunbeams play
There I wandered through the clover
Singing to a village maid

    She was dearer than the dearest
    Ever loving kind and true
    And she wore beneath her bonnet
    Amber tresses tied with blue

Fate decreed that we be parted
E'er the leaves of autumn fell
Then two hearts were separated
That had loved each other well

She was all I had to cherish
Ever loving kind and true
Now I see in every vision
Amber tresses tied with blue
