[D]I saw her first on a [G]morning[A] fair,
When [D]nature smiled [A]and the [G]world was [D]young.
gleamed on her [G]golden [A]hair,
And the [D]black-bird's carol was [G]sweetly [D]sung,
We [Bm]walked by the [A]murm-'ring[Bm]
And [Em]home-ward [D]turned with the [Em]setting [G]sun,
And she [D]shyly whispered she'd [G]be my [A]bride.
[D]be by my [G]side 'till life was [D]done.
And now dear love, though your golden hair,
Has lost through time it's sunny glow,
To me your still the vision
I saw one morning long ago.
The world is old the wind blows chill
But once again love, hear me say
you then I'll love you still,
Till all my life shall pass away.
Till all my life shall pass away
