JOHN RILEY (Phil Belmonte / Bob Gibson) Recorded by: Joan Baez; The Byrds; Bob Gibson; Roger McGuinn. Fair young maid all in her garden Strange young man come riding by Saying fair young maid will you marry me? And this dear sir was her reply Oh no dear sir I cannot marry thee For I've a love who sails the deep salt sea Though he's been gone for seven years Still no man shall marry me What if he's died all in some battle slain? Or if he's drownded in the deep salt sea What if he's found another love He and his new love both married be? Well if he's died all in some battle slain Or if he's drownded in the deep salt sea I'll remember his good name And still no man shall marry me. And if he's found some other love He and his true love both married be I wish them health and happiness Where they now live all across the sea He picked her up all in his arms And kisses gave her one two and three Saying weep no more my own true love For I'm your long lost John Riley Saying weep no more my own true love For I'm your long lost John Riley
