Lost Love Blues-Dock Boggs
Banjo tuned eAEG#B, played in F position, sounding in D

I lost you, darling true love,
And now I'm growing old
My pockets are all empty
Of both silver and gold

While my money lasted
You gave my heart ease
But since I have nothing
You go with who you please

I'm heart-broken and lonely
No one can take your place
Everywhere I chance to look
I can see your smiling face

Darling, oh darling sweetheart
Your name I'll never tell
If you don't change your cruel ways
My soul is doomed for hell

Don't shed a tear, my darling,
As the daisies o'er me grows
Just decorate my lonesome grave
With a wilted, faded rose

If I had a pass to Glory
And it did not read "For Two"
I'd trade it all for your true love
And stay on Earth with you

Your eyes, they shine like diamonds
Your cheeks are like a rose
The way I love you, darling girl,
Great God in Heaven knows

Lost love, lost love, my darling,
How can you treat me so?
To leave your own true lover
And with a false one go

Many times over you I've pondered
Happy hours with you I've spent
You won my heart forever
While yours was only lent

There'll come a time, my darling,
In just a few short, more days
You'll hang your head in sorrow
As I'm lowered in my grave

Keep all the little tokens
I have so fondly gave
Just grant to me my last request
Take them with you to your grave

Don't shed a tear, my darling,
As the daisies o'er me grows
Just decorate my lonesome grave
With a wilted, faded rose
