Lily of the West - Joan Baez (瓊·貝茲)

When first I came to Louisville

Some pleasure there to find

 

A damsel there from Lexington

 

Was pleasing to my mind

 

Her rosy cheeks her ruby lips

 

Like arrows pierced my breast

 

And the name she bore was Flora

 

The Lily Of The West

 

I courted lovely Flora

 

Some pleasure there to find

 

She turned unto another man

 

Which sore distressed my mind

 

She robbed me of my liberty

 

Deprived me of my rest

 

Then go my lovely Flora

 

'The Lily Of The West

 

Down in yonder shady grove

 

A man of high degree

 

Conversing with my Flora there

 

It seemed so strange to me

And the answer that she gave to him

 

It sure did me oppress

I was betrayed by Flora

The Lily Of The West

 

I stepped up to my rival

 

My dagger in my hand

 

I seized him by the collar

 

And I boldly made him stand

Being mad to desperation

 

I pierced him in the breast

 

Then go my lovely Flora

 

The Lily Of The West

 

I had to stand my trial

 

I had to make my plea

 

They placed me in the criminal box

And then commenced on me

 

Although she swore my life away

 

Deprived me of my rest

 

And I still love my faithless Flora

 

The Lily Of The West
