Oh dear me, what do mine eyes see?
James Reynold and my love sat under yon tree

My heart it bleeds, for she loves him, indeed
Sing hi lo lay at the end of the day
Sing hi lo lay at the end of the day

Here I stand, empty heart, empty hand
While he has my true love, and he has the land

Oh my heart is sore, for she loves me no more
Sing hi lo lay at the end of the day
Sing hi lo lay at the end of the day

No more she'll fly, no more she'll cry
All over the cold earth, beneath which I lie

Oh my heart it grieves, for my side she now leaves
Sing hi lo lay at the end of the day
Sing hi lo lay at the end of the day

Let the cold wind blow, let the years come and go
I'll wait for my true love, though she'll never know

I wish them no rest, like the heart in my breast
Sing hi lo lay at the end of the day
Sing hi lo lay at the end of the day

I wish them no rest, like the heart in my breast
Sing hi lo lay at the end of the day
