Kate Rusby – The Fairest Of All Yarrow lyrics

Billy's fair and Billy's rare
And Billy's wondrous bonny
And Billy promised to marry me
If e'er he'd marry any
And Billy promised to marry me
If e'er he'd marry any

Late last night I'm in my bed
Waiting on my lover
And there I waited all night long
My heart won't take another
Oh there I waited all night long
My heart won't take another

Came you by yon water side
Past the rose and lily
Or came you by yon meadow green
Or saw you my sweet Billy
Or came you by yon meadow green
Or saw you my sweet Billy

She's sought him east
And she's sought him west
She sought him broad and narrow
She shought him in another's arms
The fairest of all Yarrow
She shought him in another's arms
The fairest of all Yarrow
