[Verse 1]
Sunny was the day in the month of May
As we drove along the mountainside
You were happy, Lou, I was happy too
As I rode beside my blushin’ bride.
Folks along the way stopped a-makin’ hay
Just to come and wish us joy for life,
And you turned so red, when somebody said,
Boy, you sure have got a sweet young wife.

[Chorus]
My darling Lou, Lou, how the birds are callin’ and the morning glories miss you too, my honey.
Lou, Lou, how ma’ tears are fallin’ For there never was a gal like you.

[Verse 2]
I’ve got roses, Lou, honeysuckles too
In that little spot beyond the mill,
And they’re goin’ to stay fresh until the day,
When I come an’ join you on the hill.
Seems the Lord was quite a selfish like,
For to rob me of your sunny smile,
But instead I know, I should thank Him so,
Cause he left you with me for a while

[Chorus]
