Pretty Saro
(Traditional)

When I first come to this country in seventeen-forty-nine,
I saw many fair lovers, but never saw mine.
I looked all around me, and I found I was alone.
Me a poor stranger, and a long way from home.

Down in some lonesome valley, down in some lonesome place,
Where the wild birds to whistle their notes to increase,
I think of pretty Saro whose waist is so neat
And I know of no better pastime than to be with my sweet.

My love she won't have have me, so I understand
She wants a free-holder, who owns house and land.
I cannot maintain her with silver and gold,
Nor buy all the find things that a big house can hold.

I wish I was a poet and could write a fine hand.
I would send my love a letter that she could understand.
And I'd send it by a messenger where the waters do flow.
And think of pretty Saro wherever I go.

When I first come to this country in seventeen-forty-nine,
I saw many fair lovers, but never saw mine.
I looked all around me, and found I was alone.
Me a poor stranger, and a long way from home.

Public domain books belong to the public and we are merely their custodians.
This effort is time consuming and expensive, so in order to keep providing

including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Doctrine Publishing
