I loved her too much.

When I was a young man, long years ago
I met a maiden, her hair black as coal
Her lips like dark cherries, Her eyes full of moon
Oh, I loved her too much
We parted to soon


Down by the river through long summer days
We walked their together - sometimes we lay
We promised forever, we reached for the moon
Oh, I loved her too much
We parted too soon


And then came September and the north wind blew raw
I stood by the rive but she came no more
I waited forever 'neath a cold careless moon
Oh, I loved her too much
We parted too soon
