Iris DeMent - Pretty Saro Lyrics

  • When I first come to this country in Eighteen and Forty-nine
  • I saw many fair lovers but I never saw mine
  • I viewed it all around me, saw I was quite alone
  • and me a poor stranger and a long way from home
  • Well, my true love she won't have me and it's this I understand
  • For she wants some free holder and I have no land
  • I couldn't maintain her on silver and gold
  • but all of the other fine things that my love's house could hold
  • Fair the well to ol' mother, fair the well to my father too
  • I'm going for to ramble this wide world all through
  • And when I get weary, I'll sit down and cry
  • and think of my Saro, pretty Saro, my bride
  • Well, I wished I was a turtle dove
  • Had wings and could fly
  • Far away to my lover's lodgings
  • Tonight I'd drawn the line
  • And there in her lilywhite arms I'd lay there all night
  • and watch through them little wind'ers
  • for the dawning of day
