Over yonder in the graveyard Where the wild wild flowers grow Oh there laid my own true lover He's gone from me forever more
Fairer than the sweetest flowers Restless as a wildest wind Born with a love deep as the ocean This was the boy that I did win
I left him there back in the mountains To see the world riches to gain Oh when I returned no earthly treasure Could ease this heart so full of pain
There so high upon that mountain Beneath that little mound of clay Oh the boy that I returned to marry So still among the flowers lay
I'll go away and I will wander Lay aside my earthly gains And I'll not end as a man with riches Undone in sorrow I'll remain
Undone in sorrow I'll remain
