Dew and the dew
Blow away the morning dew.
He look-ed high, he look-ed low, he cast another
And then he spied a pretty maid a-bathing in the
If you take me to my father's house, 'tis wall-ed
Ye shall enjoy my precious love and likewise
He mounted on his milk white steed, and she upon
And then they rode off down the lane like sister

So if you meet a pretty girl as you ride o'er
It's if you cannot when you may, ye shall not
when you will.
