Lay My Head Beneath A Rose

(G.Falkenstein / W.Madison) 1926

Linn Milford & his Hawaiian Singers


Al Bowlly, with backing vocals by Les Allen

Darling, first you said you loved me
When you gave your hand and heart
There were roses on your cheeks, love
And we vowed we ne'er would part
One more kiss for I am going
Far beyond all earthly woes
Let my grave be like your cheeks, love
Covered with a blossom rose

Lay me where sweet flowers blossom
Where the dainty lily grows
Where the pinks and violets mingle
Lay my head beneath a rose.

Where the pinks and violets mingle
Lay my head beneath a rose.
