They came down from the mountains
They've strayed too long from the fountain
And all the while
All the while they longed for us
But I won't betray, no I won't betray, no I won't betray, I won't
No, I won't betray, no I won't betray, no I won't betray, I won't
Till the water's all long gone

And you, my sweet flower
And how you proved more sweet by the hour
And loath was I, loath was I
To lose you
My tender rose, my limber rose, my slender roping darling
My tender rose, my slender rose, my limber loping darling
But my darlin's, long long long

They came down from the mountains
They strayed too long from the fountain
Oh my girl, oh my love, I've lost you
But I won't betray, no I won't betray, no I won't betray, I won't
No, I won't betray, no I won't betray, no I won't betray, I won't
Till the water's all long gone
