Lyrics

Oh, the sun shines high on yonder hill
And low in yonder town
In the place where my love nifty dwell
The sun goes never down

"Go and saddle to me the black and the blank
Go and saddle to me the brown
That I may ride around here, girl
That I may ride around."

"Oh, but when will you come back again?
And when will you be home?"
"When the heather hills are nine times burnt
And all grow green again."

"Oh, but that's too long to stay away
That's too long from your home
And the babe that lies in my true side
Will be too long want his name."

But he turned his high horse all about
And fast away rode he
And she's kilted up her gay clothing
And fast, fast followed she

Crying, "Love for love that I do want
And love for love again
Oh it's hard that I like you so well
And you not me again."

And the very first town that they come to
Oh, he's bought her a broach and a ring
And he's bid her rue and get along now
No more follow him

"But it's love for love that I do want
And love for love again
It's hard that I like you so well
And you not me again."

But the very next town that they come to
Oh, he's bought her hose and shoen
And he's bid her rue and get along now
No more follow him

"But it's love for love that I do want
And love for love again
Oh, it's hard that I like you so well
And you not me again."

And the very next town that they come to
Oh, he's bought her a wedding ring
And he's bid her dry up her rosy cheeks
And she should follow him

"For it's love for love that I do want
And love for love again
And there's none for you but me, dear girl
None for you but me

"There's comfort for the comfortless
There's honey for the bee
And there's none for me but you, dear girl
None for you but me

"And it's love for love that I have got
And love for love again
So turn your high horse head about
And we will head for home."
