Roses, wood violets & dew

Roses are red and wood violets are blue
I love you, Babe, like the dawn loves the dew
Oh, I love you, Babe, like the dawn loves the dew
I’m bringing home roses and violets too
I’m bringing home roses and violets for you

.

I’m sorry I left, that I never came through
I’m bringing you flowers— Seems all I can do
I just had to walk. I just had to think
I just had to find my way back from the brink
And now I’m coming home with the smell of fresh dew
And rosebuds I’ve stolen, like I once stole you

.

These roses are red and sweet violets are blue
I love you, Babe, like the dawn loves the dew
Oh, I love you, Babe, like the dawn and the dew
I’m bringing home roses and violets for you
I’m bringing home roses, wood violets and dew

A country song or an Irish one.
