Low Among The Roses

Lyrics and melody © 1999 by Catherine Faber
Arrangement © 1999 by Arlene "Callie" Hills

Will sang sweet as a courting dove
Shy as a doe was Mhari's love
She never dared her heart to show
Low among the roses oh,

Low among the roses
Low among the roses
She never dared her heart to show*
Low among the roses oh.

When Will would sing a courting song
Mhari used to sing along
Their voices danced where the willows grow
Low among the roses oh,

Willie said as spring drew near
"Friendship cannot keep me here
To seek my fortune I mean to go"
Low among the roses oh.

There they said their brief goodbyes;
Her heart spoke only from her eyes
He left her there with her head bowed low
Low among the roses oh.

Love that will not speak its name
Only has itself to blame.
I'll not end like Mhari, no
Low among the roses oh.


* The third line of the chorus is always the same as the third line of the preceding verse.
