I dreamed a dream the other night,
Lowlands, Lowlands away my John,
My love she came dressed all in white;
My lowlands away.
She came to me at my bedside,
All dress'd in white like some fair bride;
And bravely in her bossom fair,
Lowlands, Lowlands away my John,
A red, red rose my love did wear;
My lowlands away.
No sound she made, no word she said,
Lowlands, Lowlands away my John,
And then I knew my love was dead;
My lowlands away.
