(Melody by George R. Poulton, 1861, Lyrics by W.W. Fosdick)
1. As the blackbird in the spring beneath the willow tree
Sat and piped I heard him sing and sing of Aura Lee.
Aura Lee, Aura Lee, maid of golden hair.
Sunshine came along with thee, and swallows in the air.
2. On her cheek the rose was born, ’twas music when she spake.
In her eyes the rays of mom with sudden splendor break. Refrain
