Original text and translations
My love she was fair and my love she was kind
And cruel the judge and jury that sentenced her away
For thieving was a thing that she never was inclined to
They send my love across the sea ten thousand miles away
All around my hat I will wear the greenie willow
All around my hat for a year and a day
And if anyone should question me the reason for me wearing it
I'll tell them my own true love is ten thousand miles away.
