One of my favourite songs is a traditional ballad song by an old friend of mine. Her words are slightly different from other published ones that I have seen:

Early One Morning (Traditional ?)
Early one morning
Just as the sun was rising
I heard a maiden singing
In the valley below.
Chorus:
Oh don't deceive me,
Oh never leave me,
May they love ner' from me go.
Oh fresh are the garlands
And red are the roses
I have gathered from the garden
To place upon my brow.
Chorus:
Oh don't decieve me,
Oh never leave me,
May thy love ner' from me go.
Thus sang the pretty maiden
Her sorrows recalling
Thus sang the pretty maiden
In the valley below.
Chorus:
Oh don't decieve me,
Oh never leave me,
May thy love ner' from me go.
