Thread Name: Lyr Req/ADD: Only a Leaf from a Rosebud
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: A Dear Faded Leaf From A Rose,old song
Hi What about ye

I have been trying to find a very similar song since the Pope was an alter boy, my Dad used to sing it and I would love to get all the words. I can only remember the following :

Only a leaf, but oh what grief,
It was worn in the days long ago,
Once it was red, now faded and dead,
and the women who wore it lies low
I was worn by a beautiful lady
She should have been my wife
Only a leaf of a rose bud
It has changed the whole course of my life
