Lyr/Chords Req: The Knight of the Rose (E McGann)

I do not recall who wrote this song; It is about a man who meets and falls in love but it contains these lyrics:
She said to me, where would I be, but watching o'er my dear... but watching o'er my dear, my love, but watching o'er my dear, She said to me, where would I be, but watching o'er my dear. each verse repeats like this, but with different lyrics.
Anyone ever heard it? Or know where I can find a recording? I appreciate any help with this.

THE KNIGHT OF THE ROSE
As sung by Eileen McGann on "Turn It Around"
1. I dreamed I saw a garden. A lady, she stood there.
Green and white were her garments, a red rose in her hair.
I said to her, "My lady, what do you do in here?"
She smiled and said, "Where would I be But watching o'er my dear?
But watching o'er my dear, my love, but watching o'er my dear,
She smiled and said where would I be but watching o'er my dear?"

2. She gently took my hand then. Her glove was all white lace,
And though we walked through garden paths, her small feet left no trace.
More lovely than the roses, more stately than the trees,
And bloom and bough reached out to her and danced upon the breeze....
3. We rested on a hanging bough. Secrets she revealed
Of a land where summer always shines and wounded hearts are healed,
Where sorrow never lingers and nothing causes pain,
Where heart's desire is heart's delight forever and again....
4. We walked again and mists arose. Her hand was cold in mine,
When suddenly my mind was filled with all I'd left behind.
I cried, "Where do you lead me?" Her eyes filled with despair,
And softly then she disappeared into the fragranced air....
5. And so now I wander all alone and never can find rest,
For she took all my heart's content, laid fire within my breast.
No beauty can be rich now nor music can seem fair.
Until I find my lady with the red rose in her hair....
The red rose in her hair, my love....
