I dreamed my love came in my sleep

Lowlands - Lowlands away my John.

His eyes were wet as he did weep

My Lowlands away

I shall never kiss you again he said

Lowlands - Lowlands away my John.

For I am drowned in the Lowland seas

My Lowlands away

No other man shall think me fair

Lowlands Lowlands away my John

My love lies drowned in the windy

Lowlands My Lowlands away
