F             C              Gm                        F  C         Dm
And that is a kiss from your lily white lips then I'll go from your grave"

F          C       Gm                  F         C        Dm
And if you kiss my cold clay lips your days they won't be long
F          C       Gm                  F         C        Dm                    Dm
                                  your days they won't be long

                                           that a young man never had known"

'Twas down in Cupid's Garden where you and I would walk
