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