Tekst Edytuj

When the hills were purple with heather
And spring rode over the Dale
When my love and I were together,
I could dream of a bridal veil.

Before the Hounds came to rend us,
We did own the spring and the moor -
Now war has become my love's mistress
And my young heart is weary and sore.

Still in dreams do I walk out of fair valley
Still in dreams I remember his voice,
In that lost time still we do dally
And still now is he my heart's choice.
For a bond, once formed, is not broken
And a promise, once having been spoken
Must be kept, regardless of cost.
