Down by the Sally Gardens

This song is by Clannad and appears on the live album Clannad in Concert (1978) and on the live album Live in Concert (2005).

Down by the sally gardens my love and I did meet
She passed the sally gardens with little snow-white feet
She bid me to take love easy as the leaves grow on the trees
But I being young and foolish with her would not agree

In a field by the river my love and I did stand
And on her leaning shoulder she laid her snow-white hand
She bid me to take life easy as the grass grows on the weirs
But I was young and foolish and now I am full of tears

Down by the sally gardens my love and I did meet
She passed the sally gardens with little snow-white feet
She bid me to take love easy as the leaves grow on the trees
But I being young and foolish with her would not agree
