oh, come hear my story, i’ll tell it to you
my heart is all broken, i’m sad and i’m blue
i just lost my darling, her name was la la
as pretty as a picture and oh, twice as fair.
hey! la la, oh! la la, my true la la-aa
hey! la la, oh! la la, my true la la.
a grave on the hillside all covered with snow
a heart broken lover with head bending low
with tears in his eyes, he placed a red rose
on the grave of his darling up there in the snow.
oh! god up in heaven, please tell her for me
my hopes are all shattered, oh! say can’t you see
just tell her i’m waiting to meet her up there
i’ll look at her picture and send her a prayer
