The Sally Gardens

Irish Traditional

A thoughtful song of regret. A young man sings of a meeting with his former beloved. „She advised me to take love easy, as the leaves grew on the tree. But I was young and foolish, with my darling could not agree“. Needless to say, his heart is then broken… (arr.: Euwe de Jong)

Irish traditional — Lyrics: William Butler Yeats, 1889

Down by the Sally Gardens, my love and I did meet.
She passed the Sally Gardens with little snow-white feet.
She bid me take love easy, as the leaves grow on the tree.
But I was young and foolish, with her did not agree.

In a field down by the river, my love and I did stand
And on my leaning shoulder, she laid her snow-white hand.
She bid me take life easy, as the grass grows on the weirs.
But I was young and foolish, and now am full of tears.
