1.
Down by the Sally Gardens my love and I did meet.
She passed the Sally Gardens with little snow-white feet.
She bid me take love easy, as the leaves grow on the tree.
But I, being young and foolish, with her did not agree.

2.
In a field down by the river my love and I did stand.
And on my leaning shoulder she laid her snow-white hand.
She bid me take life easy, as the grass grows on the weirs.
But I was young and foolish and now am full of tears.

3.
Down by the Sally Gardens my love and I did meet.
She passed the Sally Gardens with little snow-white feet.
She bid me take love easy, as the leaves grow on the tree.
But I, being young and foolish, with her did not agree.
