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 lee shore

She’s like her love and love is no more

It’s out in the meadow this fair maid did go

Picking the lovely 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 this fair maid’s heart was broke.
