From glen to glen and down the mountain side

But if he come and all the roses dying

And I am dead, as dead I well may be
                C Cmaj7  C7               F     Fm
You'll come and find the place where I am lying
              C  Am    F   G         C
And kneel and say   an Ave there for me

G  Am    C            F               C

And I shall feel, though soft you tread above me
G   Am   Am    F                                 G 
And then my grave will richer, sweeter be
G                  C          D                C    Am 
For you will bend and tell me that you lo---ve    me
            C       Am      Dm      G       C   G7
And I shall rest in peace until you come to me

            C       Am7                  C/G
And I shall rest in peace until you come to me
