Peter, Paul & Mary
Ami G F Ami1. When first I came to Louisville my fortune there to find G F AmiI met a fair young maiden there her beauty filled my mind G F Amiher rosy cheek her ruby lips they gave my heart no rest G F Amithe name she bore was Flora the lily of the west. 2. I courted lovely Flora she promised ne'er to go but soon a tale was told to me that filled my heart with woe they said she meets another man who holds my love in jest and yet I trusted Flora the lily of the west. 3. 'Way down in yonder shady grove a man of low degree he spoke unto my Flora there and kissed her 'neath a tree the answers that she gave to him like arrows pierced my breast I was betrayed by Flora the lily of the west. 4. I stepped up to my rival my dagger in my hand I seized him by the collar and I ordered him to stand all in my desperation I stabbed him in his breast I'd killed a man for Flora the lily of the west. 5. And then I had to stand my trial I had to make my plea they placed me in a pris'ner's dock and then commended on me although she swore my life away deprived me of my rest still I love my faithless Flora the lily of the west.
