Get down, get down, young Henry Lee
And stay the night with me The very best lodging that I can afford
Will be fare better'n thee
Well I can't get down, and I won't get down
And spend my night with thee
For the girl that I have in that merry green Land
I love far better than thee
She leaned herself against the fence
Just for a kiss or two
With a little penknife held in her hand
She plugged him through and through
«Come all you ladies in this town
A secret for me keep
For this diamond ring held in my hand
I never will forsake»
«Some take him by his lilly white hands
Some take him by his feet
We'll throw him in this deep, deep well
More than 100 feet»
Lie there, lie there, young Henry Lee
'Till the flesh drops from your bones
And the girl you have in that merry green land
Will wait for your return
Fly down, fly down, you little bird
And alight on my right knee
Your cage will be of purest gold
In deed, of ivory
Well I can't fly down and I won't fly down
And alight on your right knee
For the girl who would murder her own true love
Would kill a litttle bird like me Oh if I had my bend and bow
My arrow and my string
I'd pierce a dart so near your heart
Your warble would be in vain
But if you had your bend and bow
Your arrow and your string
I'd fly away to that merry green land
And tell what I have seen
