Young Emily was fair lady bright
Who sailed over the ocean
Seven long years returning,
He'd been sailing over the main

Down by the river side
And I shall be your bride
Don't let my parents know
Down in the low land, low"
Young Henry taking a drink
Not thinking of the danger
Young Edward said to his father,
And send his body sinking fast

She dreamed an awful dream
Her true love's blood
Waking early morning
"where could be that stranger boy

You robbed me of my wren!
The one that I loved best!
Are bending to and fro
Down in the low land, low"
