She said ‘My cup it overflows, if I stoop down I might fall in
At the well below the valley-o.

If your true love was passing by, you’d fill him a drink if he got dry
At the well below the valley-o.

She swore by grass, she swore by corn, that her true love was never born
At the well below the valley-o.

I say, young maid, you’re swearing wrong, for five fine children you had born
At the well below the valley-o.

If you’re a man of noble fame, you’ll tell me who’s the father of them
At the well below the valley-o.

There was two of them by your uncle Dan, another two by your brother John
At the well below the valley-o.

Another by your father dear at the well below the valley-o
At the well below the valley-o.

Well if you’re a man of noble fame, you’ll tell me what did happen to them
At the well below the valley-o.

There was two of them buried by the stable door, another two ‘neath the kitchen floor
At the well below the valley-o.

Another’s buried by the well, at the well below the valley-o
At the well below the valley-o.

Well if you’re a man of noble fame, you’ll tell me what will happen myself
At the well below the valley-o.

You’ll ne seven years a-portering in hell, and seven years a-ringing a bell
At the well below the valley-o.

I’ll be seven years a-ringing a bell, but the Lord will save my soul from portin’ in hell
At the well below the valley-o.
