Down in the valley, Valley so low, Hang yore head over, Hear the wind blow. Hear the wind blow, love, Hear the wind blow, Hang yore head over, Hear the wind blow.
If you don't love me,
Love whom you please,
But throw yore arms round me,
Give my heart ease.
Give my heart ease, dear,
* James Howard, a blind mountain fiddler of Harlan, Kentucky, supplied the tune and certain of the verses for this song, and Harvey H. Fuson, also of Harlan, permitted the use of stanzas from his Ballads of the Kentucky Highlands.
