A Bunch Of Violets Blue Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords. Unknown songwriter. Recorded by Brendan Shine. The second song in the youtube video is ''Did You Miss Me'' followed by ''Rose Of Castlerea'' , Brendan's biggest hit that got him started on the road to fame was Do You Want You're Old Lobby Washed Down. A fine singer indeed.

[D]It was out in a moonlit [D7]garden, not [G]far from the ballroom [D]grand,
A [D]soldier and his sweetheart went ]E]strolling hand in [A]hand.
To[D]morrow the war would call him he [G]vowed he would be [D]true
Then from her[G] breast she [D]gave to[G] him a [D]bunch of violets [A]blue.


They were only a bunch of violets, a bunch of violets blue
Fresh and fair and fragrant like diamonds on the dew.
Fresh and fair and dainty as he pressed them to his heart
He smiled and said where e'er he'd roam, from them he ne'er would part.


A soldier boy lay dying, upon the cold cold ground,
A bunch of withered violets, upon his breast was found.
Turning to his conrades with a feeble voice he sighed
Take them back and tell her that I wore them till I died.


They took the withered violets back, it being on her wedding day
An old man's gold had won her, from her soldier far away
An old man's gold had won her, from her soldier young and tall,
And this is what she said to him, that evening at the ball
