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

But' 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

 

Way 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

 

I still love my faithless Flora

The lily of the west
