See That My Grave is Kept Green

When I am dead and gone from you darling
When I am laid away in my grave
When my spirit is gone to heaven above
To Him whom my soul will save

Oh the day will come to you darling
When no more on earth I'll be seen
There is one little wish darling grant me
See that my grave is kept green

When from this world I go
Leaving forever the scene
While others are dead oh will you then
See that my grave is kept green

Oh the hour of joy is passing
But alas how soon it will fade
Your glances of love are meeting my own
And sunlight will turn to shade

I shall never be happy again my love
Never be happy again
For a girl in her teens dont know what love means
I shall never be happy again
