      Loreena McKennitt - Banks Of Claudy Música y Letra

      As I walked out one morning
      All in the month of May
      Down by a flowery garden
      I carelessly did stray
      I overheard a young maid
      In sorrow did complain
      All for her absent lover
      Who plows the raging main
      I boldly stepped up to her
      And put her in surprise
      I know she did not know me
      I being in disguise
      I says, "Me charming creature
      My joy, my hearts delight
      How far have you to travel
      This dark and dreary night?"
      "I'm in search of a faithless young man
      Johnny is his name
      And along the Banks of Claudy
      I'm told be does remain"
      "This is the Banks of Claudy
      Fair maid where on you stand
      But don't depend on Johnny
      For he's a false young man
      Oh, don't depend on Johnny
      For he'll not meet you here
      But tarry with me in yon green woods
      No danger need you fear
      Oh, it's six long weeks or better
      Since Johnny left the shore
      He's crossing the wild ocean
      Where the foam and the billows roar
      He's crossing the wild ocean
      For honour and for fame
      But this I've beard, the ship was wrecked
      All on the coast of Spain"
      Oh, it's when she heard this dreadful news
      She flew into despair
      By the wringing of her milk white hands
      And the tearing of her hair
      Saying "If Johnny he is drowned
      No man on earth I'll take
      But through lonesome groves and valleys
      I'll wander for his sake"
      Oh, it's when he saw her loyalty
      No longer could he stand
      He flew into her arms saying
      "Betsy, I'm the man"
      "Saying Betsy, I'm the young man
      The cause of all your pain
      But since we've met on Claudy Banks
      We'll never part again"
