lo the rose cease to bloom
on the trellis of a california room
please don't forget me when you leave
when you leave, lord when you leave
o please don't forget me when you leave
your lips last to kiss
your body last slept with
it's my own true love that I miss
that I miss, lord that I miss
it's my own true love that I miss
I was working in a store
doing my daily chore
when I heard the news from a friend
said you finally met your match
you done and made your catch
and would I be there on your wedding day
wedding day, lord wedding day
would I be there on your wedding day
no shirt on my back
not a penny on my name
I can't go and see you this a-way
this a-way, lord this a-way
no, I can't go and see you this a-way
how them wedding bells did ring
and them birdies took to sing
I saw it all ten miles away
with no shoes on my feet
no words upon my voice
how I prayed for you on your wedding day
wedding day, lord wedding day
how I prayed for you on your wedding day
lo the rose cease to bloom
on the trellis of a california room
o please don't forget me when you leave
when you leave, lord when you leave
o please don't forget me when you leave
