Burl Ives – Pretty Polly

I courted pretty Polly the live long night
I courted pretty Polly the live long night
But I slept on her grave the best part of last night

Pretty Polly, Pretty Polly, come and go along with me.
Polly oh Polly, come and go along with me.
Before we get married some pleasure we'll see.

She jumped up behind him and away they did ride.
She jumped up behind him and away they did ride
to the wild running river, to the wild country side.

They rode a little further and what did they spy?
They rode a little further and what did they spy?
A newly dug grave and a spade lying by.

Oh Willie, oh Willie, I'm scared of your ways.
Oh Willie, oh Willie, I'm scared of your ways.
I'm scared you will lead my poor body astray.

Pretty Polly, Pretty Polly, you guessed just about right.
Pretty Polly, oh Polly, you guessed just about right.
Oh I dug on your grave just about all of last night.

He stabbed her in the breast, her heart blood did flow.
He stabbed her in the breast and her heart blood did flow.
And into her grave Pretty Polly did go.

He covered her up and he left her alone.
He covered her up and he left her alone.
With nobody there but the wild birds to moan.

A debt to the devil Willie must pay.
A debt to the devil Willie must pay
for killing Pretty Polly and running away.

Oh where is Pretty Polly? Yonder she stands.
Oh where is Pretty Polly? Yonder she stands.
The rings on the fingers of her lily white hand.



Mirror lyrics:


The rings on the fingers of her lily white hand.
Oh where is Pretty Polly? Yonder she stands.
Oh where is Pretty Polly? Yonder she stands.

for killing Pretty Polly and running away.
A debt to the devil Willie must pay
A debt to the devil Willie must pay.

With nobody there but the wild birds to moan.
He covered her up and he left her alone.
He covered her up and he left her alone.

And into her grave Pretty Polly did go.
He stabbed her in the breast and her heart blood did flow.
He stabbed her in the breast, her heart blood did flow.

Oh I dug on your grave just about all of last night.
Pretty Polly, oh Polly, you guessed just about right.
Pretty Polly, Pretty Polly, you guessed just about right.

I'm scared you will lead my poor body astray.
Oh Willie, oh Willie, I'm scared of your ways.
Oh Willie, oh Willie, I'm scared of your ways.

A newly dug grave and a spade lying by.
They rode a little further and what did they spy?
They rode a little further and what did they spy?

to the wild running river, to the wild country side.
She jumped up behind him and away they did ride
She jumped up behind him and away they did ride.

Before we get married some pleasure we'll see.
Polly oh Polly, come and go along with me.
Pretty Polly, Pretty Polly, come and go along with me.

But I slept on her grave the best part of last night
I courted pretty Polly the live long night
I courted pretty Polly the live long night
