Oh, The Tears I've Shed
The Red Garden
You've tied ribbons in your locks,
Still I want to remember,
But life flowed away,
The Vagabond's Road
With yearning I look at you,
So do not deny the vagabond his path,
The Gipsy's Dream
I journey through the time of dreams,
Yesterday I danced with a young bride's heart,
