Lyrics

Lily Of The Valley
Words and Music © Grant Maloy Smith

She said that I was
bound to be her lover
And I thought that meant holding hands
Two foolish children off in the fields
That girl was always making plans


But Lily of the Valley
Disappeared like picnics in the rain
Yes, I searched for her in vain
But her grandpa packed them up
and moved them back to Tennessee
I always thought he meant to
hide her from me
I wonder if she thinks about me today
Lily of the Valley was her name


But Lily of the Valley
Disappeared like picnics in the rain
Yes, I searched for her in vain
But her grandpa packed them up
and moved them back to Tennessee
I always thought he meant to
hide her from me
I wonder if she thinks about me today
Lily of the Valley was her name
