He rode her over the hill and the valleys so deep
He rode her over the hill and the valleys so deep
Pretty pooly mistrusted and then began to weep.

Oh Willie, Oh Willie I'm afraid of your ways x2
The way you've been acting, you'll lead me astray.

Oh Polly, O Polly, your guess is about right.x2
I dau on your grave the best part of last night.

She Knelt down before him, pleading for her life x2
Please let me be a single girl I I cant be you wife.
He stabbed her in the heart and her heart's blood did flow x2
And into the grave pretty polly did go.

He went to the jailhouse and what did he say x2
I killed pretty Polly and tried to get away.

Oh gentlemen and ladies, I bid you farewell x2
For killing pretty Polly my soul will go to hell.
