There’s a little rosewood casketResting on a marble standWith a packet of old love lettersWritten by my true love’s handGo and bring them to me, sisterRead them o’er for me tonightI have often tried by could notFor the tears that filled my eyesWhen I’m dead and in my casketWhen I gently fall asleepFall asleep to wake in heavenDearest sister do not weepTake his letters and his locketPlace them gently on my heartBut this golden ring that he gave meFrom my finger never partRepeat chorus
