    W:
    W:1) It was down by the Salley Gardens, my love and I did meet.
    W:She crossed the Salley Gardens with little snow-white feet.
    W:She bid me take love easy, as the leaves grow on the tree,
    W:But I was young and foolish, and with her did not agree.
    W:
    W:2) In a field down by the river, my love and I did stand.
    W:And on my leaning shoulder, she laid her snow-white hand.
    W:She bid me take life easy , as the grass grows on the weirs
    W:But I was young and foolish, and now am full of tears.
    W:
    W:3) Down by the Salley Gardens, my love and I did meet.
    W:She crossed the Salley Gardens with little snow-white feet.
    W:She bid me take love easy, as the leaves grow on the tree,
    W:But I was young and foolish, and with her did not agree.
  

Arrangement Note: The highest note in the melody, found at the end of the 11th measure, may not be reachable on some flutes; you may substitute closing the bottom two holes instead.
