Pretty Saro (Traditional arr. Doré)

Back to Album listing


Down in some lonesome valley
In some silent place
Well I’d dream of nothing better
Than to be with my sweet
She says she won’t have me
So that I understand
She wants a rich merchant
And I have no land

But if I were a scholar
And could write a fine hand
Well I’d write my love a letter
So that she’d understand
I’d write it by the river
Where the sweet waters flow
And I’ll dream of Pretty Saro
Wherever I go
