VERSE1
One morning One morning One morning in May
I spied a young couple they were making their way
One was a maiden So bright and so fair
And the other was a soldier And a brave volunteer
 
VERSE2
Good morning Good morning Good morning. Said he
And where are you going my pretty lady
Im going out a-walking By the banks of the sea
Just to see the waters rise and hear the nightingale sing

 
VERSE3
How they had not been standing but a minute or two
And out of his knapsack a fiddle he drew
And the tune that he played Made the valley all ring
O Hark! Cried the maiden Hear the nightingale sing
 
VERSE4
Oh maiden fair maiden tis time to give oer
Oh no kind soldier please play one tune more
For Id rather hear your fiddle And the touch of one string
Than to see the waters rise and hear the nightingale sing

 
VERSE5
Oh soldier kind soldier will you marry me
Oh no pretty maiden that never shall be
Ive a wife back in london And children twice three
Two wives and the armys too many for me

 
VERSE6
Well Ill go back to london and Ill stay for a year
So often Ill think of you my little dear
And if ever I return It will be in the spring
Just to see the waters rise and hear the nightingale sing
