Down In The Valley

Lyrics

Down in the valley, 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.

If you don't love me, love whom you please,
But throw your arms round me, give my heart ease.
Give my heart ease, dear, give my heart ease.
Throw your arms round me, give my heart ease.

Down in the valley, walking between,
Telling our story, here's what it sings:
Here's what it sings, dear, here's what it sings,
Telling our story, here's what it sings:.

Roses of sunshine, vi'lets of dew,
Angels in heaven knows I love you,
Knows I love you, dear, knows I love you,
Angels in heaven knows I love you.

Build me a castle forty feet high,
So I can see her as she goes by,
As she goes by, dear, as she goes by,
So I can see her as she goes by.

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

I believe this is an old folk song, possibly sung by the pioneers. I wish my grandchildren would put down the ipods and listen to the some of the old songs.

My great grandmother used to sing the alternate version to me when I was a kid. I'm so glad I found this , it brings back some wonderful memories!

It is not really nice to say they killed a person in a song. But otherwise, very nice.
