I'll Hang My Harp on a Willow Tree.

I'll hang my harp on a willow tree, I'm off to the wars a -gain. My peaceful home has no charm for me, the
battle field no pain, the lady I love will
soon be a bride, with a diadem on her brow Oh!
why did she flatter my boyish pride, She's going to leave me
now -
