Lyrics for:
Down by the Sally Gardens

Sheet Music (and more information about this song)

It was down by the Sally Gardens, my love and I did meet.
She passed the Sally Gardens with little snow-white feet.
She bid me take love easy, as the leaves grow on the tree.
But I, being 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-white hand.
She bid me take life easy, as the grass grows on the weirs.
But I was young and foolish, and now I am full of tears.


Comp.: Words by William Butler Yeats (1865-1939)
