Thread Name: Lyr Req/ADD: Only a Leaf from a Rosebud
Subject: Lyr Req: A dear faded leaf from a rose
Hi, can someone please help me find the lyrics to this real old song...Thanks.
Here are the only words I have to this song,

"A dear faded leaf from a rose"
When your father was found,
dead on the ground,
in his hand he was holding a leaf,
Goodbye, God Bless you Charlie lad,
How sadly she did cry,
But while I got breath, I'll never forget,
my mothers last goodbye.

It's only a leaf, just a token of grief,
It's only a leaf of a rose,
Can ever put more joy to my heart,
They a dear faded leaf of a rose.
