Down in the valley, ha
In the valley so low,
Hang your hair over your shoulder
And you can hear the four winds blow, now, oh my

Now can't you hear the wind blow my love,
Can't you hear the wind blow,
We're down in the valley, ha
In the valley so low, now, ha

Now have you ever been lonely, lonely, ha
Now have you ever been sad
Did you ever really need some one, oh my
Who really needed
