Lyrics

THE BANKS OF THE LEE

« Back to Discography

WHERE TRUE LOVERS MEET BENEATH THE GREEN BOWER. WHERE TRUE LOVERS MEETED BENEATH THE GREEN TREE. AND MARY FOND MARY. SHE SAYS ONTO HER TRUE LOVE, YOU'VE STOLE AN MY YOUNG HEART, BY THE BANKS OF THE LEE.


CHORUS: FOR I LOVED HER VERY DEARLY MOST TRUELY AND SINCERELY THERE IS NO ONE IN THIS WIDE WORLD I LOVE MORE THAN SHE. EVERY BUSH AND EVERY BOWER EVERY WILD IRISH FLOWER. REMINDS ME OF MY MARY ON THE BANKS OF THE LEE.


DON'T STAY OUT TO LATE LOVE ON THE MOOR LANDS MY MARY. DON'T STAY OUT TO LATE LOVE ON THE MOOR LANDS FOR ME. BUT LITTLE WAS MY NOTION WHEN WE PARTED BY THE OCEAN.THAT WE WERE FOREVER PARTING BY THE BANKS OF THE LEE.


CHORUS: FOR I LOVED HER VERY DEARLY MOST TRUELY AND SINCERELY THERE IS NO ONE IN THIS WIDE WORLD I LOVE MORE THAN SHE. EVERY BUSH AND EVERY BOWER EVERY WILD IRISH FLOWER. REMINDS ME OF MY MARY ON THE BANKS OF THE LEE.


I WILL PULL MY LOVE SOME ROSES, SOME WILD IRISH ROSES,I WILL PULL MY LOVE SOME ROSES,THE FAIREST TO SEE.AND I'LL LAY THEM ON THE GRAVESIDE OF MY OWN DEAR DARLING MARY. ON THAT COLD AND SILENT GRAVE WHERE SHE SLEEPS BENEATH THE DEW.


CHORUS: FOR I LOVED HER VERY DEARLY MOST TRUELY AND SINCERELY THERE IS NO ONE IN THIS WIDE WORLD I LOVE MORE THAN SHE. EVERY BUSH AND EVERY BOWER EVERY WILD IRISH FLOWER. REMINDS ME OF MY MARY ON THE BANKS OF THE LEE.
