Artist/Band: The Byrds
Lyrics for Song: John Riley
Lyrics for Album: Complete Album Collection [2011]



(B. Gibson and R. Neff)

Fair young maid all in her garden

Strange young man came riding by

Saying fair young maid will you marry me

And this then sir was her reply

Oh, no kind sir I cannot marry thee

For I've a love who sails the deep salt sea

Though he's been gone these seven years

Still no man shall marry me

What if he's died all in some battle slain

Or if he's drownded in the deep salt sea

What if he's found some another love



He and his new love both married be

If he's found some other love

He and his new love both married be

I wish them health and happiness

Where they now live all across the sea

He picked her up all in his arms

And kisses gave her one two and three

Saying weep no more my own true love

I am your long lost John Riley

Saying weep no more my own true love

For I'm your long lost John Riley
