8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
The verse is in the key of Am. The chorus is in the key of C, and starts with a G7 chord.
She is watch - ing by the pop - lars,  Col - in - ette with the sea - blue eyes,
She is watch - ing and long - ing and wait - ing,  Where the long white road - way lies.
And a song stirs in the si - lence,  As the wind in the boughs a - bove,
She lis - tens and starts and trem - bles,  'Tis the first lit - tle song of love:
"Ro - ses are shin - ing in Pi - car - dy in the hush of the sil - ver dew,
Ro - ses are flow'r - ing in Pi - car - dy, but there's nev - er a rose like you!
And the ro - ses will die with the sum - mer time, and our roads may be far - a - part,
But there's one rose that dies not in Pi - car - dy!  'Tis the rose that I keep in my heart!"
