Down in the Valley

American

Down in the valley, the valley so low,
Hang your head over, hear the wind blow.
Hear the wind blow, love, hear the wind blow,
Hang your head over, hear the wind blow.


Roses love sunshine, violets love dew,
Angels in Heaven know I love you.

If you don’t love me, love who you please,
Put your arms round me, give my heart ease.

Write me a letter, send it by mail,
Send it in care of the Birmingham jail.

Build me a castle forty feet high,
So I can see you as you ride by.

Down in the valley, the valley so low,
Hang your head over, hear the wind blow.
