The Banks of the Lee

  • Trad

    For I loved her very dearly, most truly and sincerely
    There is no one in this wide world I loved more than she
    Every bush and every bower, every wild Irish flower
    Reminds me on my Mary on the banks of the Lee

    Where true lovers meet beneath the green bower
    Where true lovers meet out beneath the green tree
    And Mary, fond Mary, she says unto her true love
    You have stolen my young heart on the banks of the Lee

    Don't stay out too late, love, on the moorlands, my Mary
    Don't stay out too late, love, on the moorlands for me
    But it's little was my notion when we parted by the ocean
    That we were forever parting by the banks of the Lee

    I will pull my love some roses, some wild Irish roses
    I wiIl pull my love some roses, the fairest to see
    And I'll lay them on the graveside of my own dear darling Mary
    On that cold and silent grave where she sleeps 'neath the dew

    As sung by Silly Wizard
