Early one morning

Melody - Melody -

Early one morning,
Just as the sun was rising,
I heard a maid sing,
In the valley below.

2. Gay is the garland,
And fresh are the roses,
I've culled from the garden,
To place upon thy brow.
3. Remember the vows,
That you made to your Mary,
Remember the bower,
Where you vowed to be true,

4. Thus sang the poor maiden,
Her sorrows bewailing,
Thus sang the poor maid,
In the valley below.

O, don't deceive me,
O, never leave me,
How could you use
A poor maiden so?
