down by the sally gardens lyrics – loreena mckennitt

it was down by the sally gardens
my love and i did meet.
she crossed the sally gardens
with little snow-white feet.

she bid me to take life easy
as the leaves grow on the tree
but i was young and foolish
and with her i did not agree.

in a field down by the river
my love and i did stand
and upon my leaning shoulder
she laid her snow-white hand.

she bid me to take life easy
as the gr*ss grows on the weirs
but i was young and foolish,
and now i am full of tears.

down by the sally gardens
my love and i did meet.
she crossed the sally gardens
with little snow-white feet.

she bid me to take life easy
as the leaves grow on the tree
but i was young and foolish
and with her i did not agree.
