lyrics

Lily Of The Valley

She said that I was
bound to be her lover
And I thought
that meant holding hands
Two foolish children
Off in the fields
That girl was always
making plans

But Lily of the Valley
Disappeared like picnics in the rain
Yes, I searched for her in vain
But her Grandpa packed her up and
Moved her back to Tennessee
I always thought he meant to
Hide her from me
I wonder if she thinks about me today
Lily of the Valley was her name

Lily of the Valley
Disappeared like picnics in the rain
Yes, I searched for her in vain
But her Grandpa packed her up and
Moved her back to Tennessee
I always thought he meant to
Hide her from me
I wonder if she thinks about me today
Lily of the Valley was her name
