i will dance, i will sing and my laugh shall be gay

i fell in love with this song when i watched the movie “walk the line” in 2005.  it’s been 4 years and i still love it!

some songs are called classics for a reason! written in 1860, this song is 149 years old! i love country. i love oldies.

Oh I’ll twine with my mingles and raven black hair
With the roses so red and the lilies so fair
And the mirtles so bright with the emerald dew
The pale and the leader and eyes look like blue

I will dance I will sing and my laugh shall be gay
I will charm every heart in each crown I will sway
When I woke from my dreaming my idols were clay
All portion of love had all blown away

Oh he taught me to love him and promised to love
And to cherish me over all others above
How my heart is now wondering no misery can tell
He’s left me no warning no words of farewell

Oh he taught me to love him and call me his flower
That was blooming to cheer him through life’s dreary hour
How i long to see him and regret the dark hour
He’s gone and neglected his pale wildwood flower

wildwood flower, the carter family
