"As I Roved Out" as written by and Traditional....
As I roved out
On a cold winter’s night
Drinking of sweet wine
I spied that girl
Sweet little girl
Who broke this heart of mine
What d'you say, banjo?

Her cheeks are like some red roses
That bruise in the month of June, oh
Her voice is like some men strumming
That’s always on some tune
What d'you say, banjo?

I wished to the Lord that I never been born
But damnit I was young
I never would've kissed your red ruby lips
Or heard your lying tongue
What d'you say, banjo?

Oh, the green, green grass
Trampled under foot
The rising moon again

My love, it is a killing thing
Did you ever feel such pain?
