Green Grow The Lilacs (Cash Johnny)

I used to have a sweetheart but now I've got none Since she's gone and left me, I care not for one Since she's gone and left me, contended I'll be For she loves another one better than me Green grow the lilacs all sparklin' with you I'm lonely, my darling, since partin' with you And by the next meeting, I hope to prove true And change the green lilacs to the red white and blue I passed my love's window both early and late The look that she gave me, made my heart ache The look that she gave me was harm for to see For she loves another one better than me Green grow the lilacs all sparklin' with you I'm lonely, my darling, since partin' with you And by the next meeting, I hope to prove true And change the green lilacs to the red white and blue I wrote my love a letter in rosy red lines She sent me an answer all twisted and twine Saying keep your love letters and I will keep mine Write to your sweetheart and I'll write to mine Green grow the lilacs all sparklin' with you I'm lonely, my darling, since partin' with you And by the next meeting, I hope to prove true And change the green lilacs to the red white and blue
