I once had a sweetheart, but now I have 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 sparkling with dew I'm lonely, my darling, since parting with you But by our 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, it makes my heart ache Oh, the look that she gave me was painful to see For she loves another one better than me Green grow the lilacs, all sparkling with dew I'm lonely, my darling, since parting with you But by our next meeting I hope to prove true And change the green lilacs to the Red, White and Blue I wrote my love letters in rosy red lines She sent me an answer all twisted in twine Sayin' keep your love letters and I will keep mine You write to your love and I'll write to mine Green grow the lilacs, all sparkling with dew I'm lonely, my darling, since parting with you But by our next meeting I hope to prove true And change the green lilacs to the Red, White and Blue ******************** ALTERNATE CHORUSES: Green grow the lilacs reminding me of The ones that I brought you with all of my love The gates of my country will open for you And change the green lilacs to the Red, White and Blue Green grow the lilacs, your favorite flower So sweetly perfuming a sad parting hour Oh, send me a message that you love me too Let's change the green lilacs to the Red, White and Blue (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2017)
