1. He came from his palace grand, he came to my cottage door,

             C               G                 C           C             G       C

    his words were few, but his looks will linger for evermore.

             F                             C                F                                     C

    The look in his sad dark eyes, more tender than words could be.

           C        G              C           C                  G         C     ~ ~

    But I was nothing to him, and he was the world to me.

 

        C                G                 C               C                    G            C

2. There in her garden she stands, all dressed in fine satin and lace,

                C          G                   C               C                  G           C

    Lady Mary so cold and so strange, who finds in his heart no place.

              F                             C                 F                        C

    He knew I would be his bride, with a kiss for a lifetime fee.

          C         G              C           C                  G         C     ~ ~

    But I was nothing to him, and he was the world to me.

 

             C               G          C               C                    G        C

3. And now in his palace grand, on a flower-strewn bed he lies,

              C         G           C                     C               G         C

    his beautiful lids are closed, o'er his sad dark beautiful eyes.

                 F                                      C                        F                  C

    And among the mourners who mourn, why should I a mourner be ?

          C          G             C           C                 G           F - C

    For I was nothing to him, and he was the world to m......e.
