Below is a video of me playing Aura Lee/Lea on my piano
The Elvis Presley song “Love Me Tender” is a derivative adaptation of this song.
Lyrics (written by W. W. Fosdick ):
When the blackbird in the Spring,
‘On the willow tree, Sat and rocked,
I heard him sing,
Singing Aura Lea.
Aura Lea, Aura Lea,Maid with golden hair;
Sunshine came along with thee,
And swallows in the air.
