Where has she gone?
O where has she gone?
The girl with the flaxen hair

My heart aches and yearns
And hopes she returns to my arms

How I wish she were here
O I wish she were near
The girl with the flaxen hair

Each night when I sleep
In my dreams you appear
We walk through the meadow
As we pass the weeping willow
You say we shall never ever be apart

I hold you in my arms
You squeeze me close to your heart
And we kiss

Then I awaken from sleep
Is she only a dream?
O please, please tell me she’s real
I know she is real in my heart

Where has she gone?
O where has she gone?
The girl with the flaxen hair
O can I live without her
Will I dream of her forever and ever and ever
Please give me one more chance to kiss her lips again
