Wild the Blossoms and Free

MIDI


Along the strand, and by the sea
There grow great fields of flowers.
That often sing soft songs to me,
As do the gentle showers.
I envy them, the blossoms wild,
For once like they was I
I swayed with every breeze so mild
And danced beneath the sky
Am - G - / - Em - - x 4

Chorus:
Wild, wild, wild, wild
Wild the blossoms and free
Gone, gone, gone, gone
Gone is my heart from me.
Am - G Am / - - G Am
/- - G Am / E FE Am -

A top the hills at mountain's feet
And in each forest glade
They make each sunlit meadow sweet
And perfume every shade
They laugh at ever passer-by
They weep at clouds above,
Yet happier and sadder I
For I have fall'n in love.

Chorus

They grow in clumps all jeweled bright
Of sapphire, ruby, gold
But living not dead is their light
An inner glow they hold
So I need neither gold nor gems
My hands the grasses part
Then braid into my hair the stems
And seek my missing heart.

Chorus
