Oh me hat it is frozen to me head.
me feet they are like a lump of lead.
me shoes they are frozen to me feet
a standing at your window.
let me in the soldier cried
cold, haily, windy night
let me in the soldier cried
for I'll not go back again no.

Oh me father he watches down on the street.
me mother the chamber keys do keep
the doors and windows they do creak,
i dare not let you in
let me in the soldier cried
cold, haily, windy night
let me in the soldier cried
for I'll not go back again no.

Oh she's rose up and she's let him in
she's kissed her true love cheek and chin.
and she's drawn him between the sheets again
and she's opened and let him in
then she has blessed the rainy night
cold, haily, windy night
then she has blessed the rainy night
that she opened and she let him in

Soldier, soldier stay with me
soldier, soldier won't you marry me
no, no, no it never can be,
so fare bid thee well for ever.
then she has wept for the rainy night
cold, haily, windy night
then she has wept for the rainy night
that she opened and she let him in.

He's jumped up all out of the bed
he's put his hat all on his head,
but she had lost her maiden head
her mother she heard the din
then she has cursed the rainy night,
cold haily, windy night
then she has cursed the rainy night
that she opened and she let him in

Then she has cursed the rainy night,
cold haily, windy night
then she has cursed the rainy night
that she opened and she let him in.
