Pretty Saro (G) CFCGCFC/CFCGCG/C-GCFC/CFCGCFC Down in some lone valley, in some lonesome place Where the wild birds do whistle and their notes do increase Farewell pretty Saro, I'll bid you adieu And I'll dream of pretty Saro where ever I go My love, she won't have me, so I understand She wants a freeholder and I have no land I can no maintain her with silver and gold Nor buy all the fine things that a big house can hold If I were a merchant and could writ a fine hand I'd write my love a letter so she'd understand But I'll wander by the river where the waters o'erflow And I'll dream of pretty Saro where ever I go Traditional DC
