who's heart is that on the allegheny
with the lily in her autumn hair
that chestnut i'd won with the broken heart
whose sorrow and whose tears

rhododendron waits in the shadow's time
mountain whisperin
let the moon be the next shore you find
leave the boy behind

who does the whistle of the #8
read the mind of the wave
the twilight had rolled through the pines
and the first lily that he gave

you took his name, he brought you just sorrow
the brakeman with the stargaze in his eyes
has lost you now, his only love
leave the lily behind
leave the lily behind
