Fiddler's Green – Annabel Lee lyrics

It was many and many a year ago
In a kingdom by the sea
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of Annabel Lee

And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me
Oh, we were so young, younger than the breeze
Children of the wide and wild sea

But we loved with a love that was more than love
I and Annabel Lee
With a love that each creature in Heaven or Hell
Went envyin' my pretty girl and me

Oh please have mercy, wi th the human fate
We're much too young, for the deathman's blade

But a chill wind blew and took her right away
And through my tears I had to see
That she was gone
Taken all away from me

And the moon never beams without bringin' me dreams
Of my beloved girl
And the stars never rise but I see the bright eyes
Of my dear and faithful Annabel Lee
