The sweet wild rose, the sweet wild rose
That lov’d to see us there
And seem’d to bid us hope, now droops
And tells me to despair.
The linnet sings his song unheard
Perched on a leafy spray
Ah, my heart is filled with woe, with woe
Since Maggie went away.

The gentle flowers, the gentle flowers
Their happy charm is fled
And now they seem like blossoms strewn
Above the silent dead.
They’re symbols now of sorrow deep
And life’s swift sure decay
Ah, my heart is filled with woe, with woe
Since Maggie went away.

The heartless sun, the heartless sun
With splendour gilds the skies
And mocks with smiling beams on a heart
That now can only sigh.
Shine on bright sun, shine on, while I
Could curse thy proud display
For my heart is filled with woe, with woe
Since Maggie went away.

Then welcome grief, then welcome grief
Man’s warm true-hearted friend
For tho’ all things be false, thou still art
Faithful to the end.
And now I walk alone with thee
Till life turns into clay
For my heart is filled with woe, with woe
Since Maggie went away.
