Green Grow The Lilacs

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Johnny Cash:
I used to have a sweetheart, but now I’ve got none
Since she’s gone and left me, I care not for one
Since she’s gone and left me, contented I’ll be
She loves another one, better than me
Johnny and June Carter:
Green grow the lilacs, all sparkling with dew
I'm lonely my darling, since parting with you
And by the next meeting, I hope to prove true
And change the green lilacs to the red, white and blue
June:
Well, I passed my love's window both early and late
And the look that he gave me, it made my heart ache
The look that he gave me was painful to see
For he loved another one, better than me
Johnny and June:
Green grow the lilacs, all sparkling with dew
I'm lonely my darling, since parting with you
And by the next meeting, I hope to prove true
And change the green lilacs to the red, white and blue
June: Well, I wrote my love a letter in red rosy lines
And he sent me an answer all twisted and twined
Johnny: I said, "keep your love letters and I will keep mine
Write to your sweetheart and I'll write to mine"
Johnny and June:
Green grow the lilacs, all sparkling with dew
I'm lonely my darling, since parting with you
And by the next meeting, I hope to prove true
And change the green lilacs to the red, white and blue
