PRETTY SARO Trad. Appalachian - earliest printing 1911 Down in some lone valley, In a lonesome place Where the wild birds do whistle, And their notes do increase Farewell pretty Saro, I bid you adieu, But I'll dream of pretty Saro Wherever I go. My love, she won't have me, So I understand, She wants a freeholder Who owns house and land. I cannot maintain her, With silver and gold Nor buy all the fine things That a big house can hold. If I were a merchant And could write a fine hand I'd write my love a letter That she'd understand I'd write it by the river Where the waters o'er- flow And I'll dream of pretty Saro, Wherever I go.
