Undone in Sorrow (Original by Ola Belle Reed)

by Lauren Mettler



Original By: Ola Belle Reed


Over yonder in the graveyard

Where the wild, wild flowers grow 

There they laid my own true lover

She's gone from me, forever more

Fairer than the sweetest flower

Restless as the wildest wind

Born with a love deep as the ocean

This was the girl that I did win

I left her there back in the mountain

To see the world riches to gain

When I returned no earthly treasure

Could ease this heart so filled with pain

There so high above the mountain

Beneath that little mound of clay

The girl that I returned to marry

So stand a mound of flowers did lay

I'll go lay you down and wander

Lay aside my earthly gain

All I am undone in riches

Undone in sorrow I will remain
