W: W:5 W:In June there was red Rose-bud W:And that is the flow'r for me W:I often times have plucked that red Rose-bud W:Til I gained the willow tree. W: W:6 W:The willow tree will twist W:And the willow tree will twine W:I often times have wish'd I were in that young man's arms W:That once had the heart of mine. W: W:7 W:Come all you false young men W:Do not leave me here to complain W:For the grass that has often times been trampled under foot W:Give it time it will rise up again.
