I'm supposed to play this song at a party this weekend. I'd like to sing it too, but the only lyrics I know are from a woman's perspective (which I will not sing). Does anyone know of any lyrics written from a man's perspective?

From Johnny Cash:
Oh I'll twine with my mingles and waving black hair With the rose so red and the lilies so fair And the myrtles so bright with the emerald dew The pale amanita and eyes look like blue
I will dance I will sing and my laugh shall be gay I will charm every heart in her crown I will sway When I woke from my dreaming my idols were clay All portions of love had all flown away
Oh she taught me to leave her and promised to love And to cherish me over all others above How my heart is now wondering no misery can tell She left me no warning no words of farewell
Yes she taught me to love her and called me her flower That was blooming to cheer her through life's dreary hour Oh I long to see her and regret the dark hour She's gone and neglected this pale wildwood flower
