It was down by the salley gardens my love and I did meet;
She passed the salley gardens with little snow-
She bid me take love easy, as the leaves grow upon the tree;
But I was young and foolish, and with her did not agree.
In a field down by the river my love and I did stand,
And on my leaning shoulder she laid her snow-
She bid me take life easy, as the grass grows on the weirs;
But I was young and foolish, and now am full of tears.
