I dreamed a dream the other night
Lowlands, lowlands, away my John
I saw my love dressed all in white
My lowlands, away.
She came to me at my bedside
Dressed all in white like some fair bride.
And nestled in her bosom there
A red, red rose my love did wear.
She made no sign, no word she said
And then I knew my love was dead.
She waved her hand, she said goodbye
I wiped the tear from out my eye.
And then awoke to hear the cry,
"Oh watch on deck! Oh watch ahoy"
