I grew up in Alabama in a valley I called home
And I learned to love sweet Lilly from the start
But I had to do my duty, yes I had to do my part
But the thought of leavin' Lilly breaks my heart

If this war could just be over and I could go back home
If I could hold and kiss her once again
Then if I should die tomorrow after lovin' her tonight
Then I would not feel my life had been in vain

'Cause she's my Lilly of the valley
And I want her for my wife
She's my Lilly of the valley
I guess I've loved Lilly almost all my life
All my life
