She’s like the swallow that flies so high

She’s like the river that never runs dry

She’s like the sunshine on the lea shore

I love my love ‘til love is no more.


“Twas out in the garden my fair maid did go

Picking the beautiful primrose

The more she plucked, the more she pulled

until she got her apron full


It’s out of those roses she made a bed

a stoney pillow for her head

She laid her down, no words she spoke

until my fair maid’s heart was broke.


Where is my love?


She’s like the swallow that flies so high

She’s like the river that never runs dry

She’s like the sunshine on the lea shore

I love my love ‘til love is no more.
