Down By the Salley Gardens

musician/member name: Mark Gilston
Duration: 00:01:45
Mark Gilston plays a famous Irish setting of a poem by William Butler Yeats on mountain dulcimer.

Down by the salley gardens
my love and I did meet;
She passed the salley gardens
with little snow white feet.
She bid me take love easy,
as the leaves grow on the tree;
But I, being young and foolish,
with her would not agree.

In a field by the river
my love and I did stand,
And on my leaning shoulder
she laid her snow white hand.
She bid me take life easy,
as the grass grows on the weirs;
But I was young and foolish,
and now am full of tears.

Nice playing, Mark.

As for the lyrics, is anyone surprised that a young man wanted to rush into things the young  woman wasn't ready for?
