The shady side of Sunny Mountain,
That's the place it all began.
There once lived the fairest maiden
And her name was Julianne.

Julie's beau was tall and handsome,
Just a poor boy with treasures few.
Still he promised rings of silver
For to prove his love was true.

Have you seen her in the moonlight,
Silver rings upon her hand?
Now she wears a crown of sorrow
And her name, and her name is Julianne.

"Wake me early in the morning
Ere the birds begin to sing.
I'll get silver from the mountain
And I'll fashion ye a ring."

Off he rode across the mountain
When the fields were damp with dew,
But instead he went a-ramblin'
And a-courtin', a-courtin' Jenny Lou.

Have you seen her in the moonlight,
Silver rings upon her hand?
Now she wears a crown of sorrow
And her name, and her name is Julianne.

The cabin door was standing open
On that wild and lonely night
And the hound dog, he lay a-dyin'
In the gloomy candlelight.

They found a shattered, empty rifle
And the shawl she used to wear,
But they never found his Julie
And they never found, they never found the hungry bear.

Have you seen her in the moonlight,
Silver rings upon her hand?
Now she wears a crown of sorrow
And her name, and her name is Julianne.
