Sweet Fern

The Carter Family

exibições 74

Springtime is coming, sweet lonesome bird,
your echo in the woodland I hear.
Down in the meadow so lonesome your singing,
while the moonlight is shining so clear.
But I know he's away in a far distant land,
a land that is over the sea.
Go fly to him singing your sweet little song.
and tell him to come back to me.

CHORUS
Sweet fern, sweet fern, sweet fern, sweet fern,
oh Tell me, is my darling still true.
Sweet fern, sweet fern, sweet fern, sweet fern,
I'll be just as happy as you.

Oh, tell me sweet fern, is he thinking of me,
and the promise he made long ago.
He said he'd return from over the sea,
oh why do the years roll so slow.
I know he's away in a far distant land,
a land that is over the sea.
Go fly to him singing your sweet little song.
and tell him to come back to me.

Sweet fern, sweet fern, sweet fern, sweet fern,
oh tell me, is my darling still true.
Sweet fern, sweet fern, sweet fern, sweet fern,
I'll be just as happy as you.

Upon my finger he placed a small ring
on the day he was leaving his home .
I promised I'd be his own little girl,
and love him wherever he'd roam.
I know he's away in a far distant land,
a land that is over the sea.
Go fly to him singing your sweet little song.
and tell him to come back to me.

CHORUS
