The violets were  
D7 
scenting the  
G 
woods, 
 
Nora,
 
Dis
D 
playing their charms to the  
A 
bees,
 
A7 
When I  
D 
first said I  
D7 
loved only  
G 
you, 
 
Nora,
 
And  
D 
you said you  
A7 
loved only  
D 
me.
 
The  
G 
chestnut blooms gleam through the  
D 
glade, 
 
Nora,
 
A  
A 
robin sang  
E7 
loud from the  
A7 
tree,
 
A7 
When I  
D 
first said I  
D7 
loved only  
G 
you, 
 
Nora,
 
And  
D 
you said you  
A7 
loved only

The golden robed daffodils shone, Nora,
And danced in the breeze of the lea,
When I first said I loved only you, Nora,
And you said you loved only me.

The birds in the trees sang their songs, Nora,
Of happier transports to be,
When I first said I loved only you, Nora,
And you said you loved only me.

Our hopes they have never come true, Nora,
Our dreams were never to be,
Since I first said I loved only you, Nora,
And you said you loved only me.
