"Green Grow The Lilacs" lyrics - THE CHAD MITCHELL TRIO

"Green Grow The Lilacs"

Green grow the lilacs, all sparkling with dew
Green grow the lilacs, and green is their hue
Each lilac of green turns to one that is blue
Love, like the lilacs, can change colors too

I used to have a young love as soft as the snow
In springtime and summer together we'd go
It's sad to the heart when your love is untrue
Like the green lilacs when they turn into blue

I passed my love's window both early and late
The look that she gives me would make your heart ache
The look that she gives me was painful to see
My love loves another much better than me
