Early one morning, just as the sun was rising
I heard a maid sing in the valley below
"Oh don't deceive me, Oh never leave me,
How could you use a poor maiden so?"

Remember the vows that you made to your Mary,
Remember the bow’r where you vowed to be true.
Oh don't deceive me…

Oh, gay is the garland and fresh are the roses
I've culled from the garden to bind on my brow.
Oh don't deceive me…

Thus sang the poor maiden, her sorrow be wailing,
Thus sang the poor maiden in the valley below.
Oh don't deceive me…
