about

An Appalachian love song, derived from English folk song.

lyrics

Down in some lonesome valley, in a lonesome place,
Where the wild birds do whistle and their notes do increase.
Farewell Pretty Saro, I bid you adieu,
And I'll dream of Pretty Saro wherever I go.

My love, she won't have me, so I understand,
She wants a freeholder who owns house on land,
I cannot maintain her with riches and gold,
Nor buy all the fine things that a big house can hold.

If I were a merchant and could write a fine hand,
I'd write my love a letter that she'd understand,
I'd write it by a river where the waters o'erflow,
And I'd dream of Pretty Saro wherever I go.
