Down In The Valley

(Song begins at 1:48)
Traditional from southern Appalachia
Rise Up Singing chapter: Love, p.123 (pretty good page number, I think)
Chords: D - - A7 / - - - D :// (same all the way through)

Down in the valley, the valley so low
Hang your head over, hear the wind blow
Hear the wind blow, dear, hear the wind blow
Hang your head over, hear the wind blow

Roses love sunshine, violets love dew
Angels in heaven know I love you
Know I love you, dear, know I love you...

If you don't love me, love whom you please
Throw your arms 'round me, give my heart ease...

Build me a castle, 40 feet high
So I can see him as he walks by...

Write me a letter, send it by mail
Send it in care of Birmingham jail...

Writing this letter containing three lines
Answer my question, "Will you be mine"...
