Intro : D,A,D 

 D                               A  
They were very very happy, their marriage was a gem, 
  G                                                  D   A 
But death was soon to take his pretty wife away from him; 
D                                            G 
With her dying breath she whispered, we have everlasting love, 
         D                             A                 D 
And I'll come back to be with you as a little snow white dove. 
          D                            A  
Time went by and nothing happened, the dove did not appear, 
    G                                         D 
The young man fell in love again and married in a year; 
But the day he brought his new bride home the neighbors were to see, 
  D                                    A                 D 
A snow white dove come fluttering down upon the snowball tree. 

There she sobbed and moaned heartbroken in an almost human way, 
G                                                      D 
No matter what the weather, she would perch there every day; 
When the neighbors and the servants, now the story they had learned, 
     D                                    A              D 
That in the `guise of this white dove the young wife had returned. 

The new bride heard the story and her nerves began to fail, 
    G                                            D 
The young man tried to help her but it was to no avail; 
To save his second marriage he knew something must be done, 
      D                           A                 D                 E 
So at dawning the next morning he went out with his gun. 

He raised the gun and fired through the leaves so deep and green, 
    A                                                     E 
The snow white breast turned scarlet and he heard a woman scream; 
The dove flew high into the air and disappeared from sight, 
       E                           G                   E 
But as he lay there in slumber the young man died that night. 

'Neath the snow ball tree they buried him to lie in last repose, 
    A                                A                E 
The young wife and the servants left for where nobody knows; 
Now the big house stands there empty and the garden lies in ruins, 
    E                                         G                    E 
But above the young man's grave each year the snow ball tree still blooms. 

They say that no one comes to see that lonely unkempt green, 
    A                                         E 
But every year at a certain time a visitor is seen; 
    G      E                                   A 
And if you spoke to the neighbors then they'll tell you what they see, 
      E                                     G                        E 
Its a snow white dove with a scarlet breast perched on the snow ball tree. 

There she sobs and moans heartbroken in an almost human way, 
A                                               E 
No matter what the weather she will perch there every day; 
And she seems forlorn and lonely for a love that couldn't last, 
            E                         G              E 
And you hear her cry in anguish for a sad and tragic past.
