Song Description

Strong piano instrumental between verses 2 and three. Celtic-sounding but not over the top with the accent; romantic ballad rather than folk feel.

Story Behind the Song

The traditional sad love songs of Irish women are heartbreaking, and unique in that with other folk traditions, usually the narrator is a man. Here a woman's lover has died; she recalls where they made love and hints at suicide.

Lyrics

Where true lovers meet beneath the green bowers,
Where true lovers meet out beneath the green tree.
And Jamie, fond Jamie; he says unto his true love.
You have stolen my young heart on the banks of the Lee.

For I loved him very dearly, most truly and sincerely.
There is noone in this wide world, I love more than he.
Every bush and every bower; every wild Irish flower.
Reminds me of my JAMIE on the banks of the Lee.

Don?t stay out too late love, on the merlins my Jamie.
Don?t stay out too late love on the merlins for me.
But its little was my notion when we parted by the ocean,
That we were forever parting on the banks of the Lee.

I will my love some roses, some wild Irish roses.
I will pull my love some roses, the fairest to see.
And I?ll lay them on the graveside of my own dear darling Jamie,
On that cold & silent grave where he sleeps beneath the dew.
