When first I came to Louisville Some pleasure there to find I met a maid from Lexington Whose beauty filled my mind. Her rosy cheeks her ruby lips Like arrows pierced my breast And the name she bore was Flora, the lily of the west. I courted lovely Flora She promised ne'er to go. But she turned unto another man Which filled my heart with woe. She robbed me of my liberty, deprived me of my rest.. Then go you faithless Flora, the lily of the west I stepped up to my rival My dagger in my hand I seized him by the collar And I boldly bade him stand. All in my desperation I pierced him in the breast I killed a man for Flora, the lily of the west. I had to stand my trial I had to make my plea They placed me in the prisoners box And then commenced on me Although she swore my life away Deprived me of my rest Still I love my faithless Flora, the lily of the west.
