QueenAdreena Pretty Polly Lyrics

Polly, pretty Polly, come, go away with me,
Polly, pretty polly, come, go away with me,
Before we get married some pleasures to see.

She jumped up beside him and away they did go,
She jumped up beside him and away they did go,
Over the mountains and the valleys below.

Billy, oh Billy, I'm afraid for my life,
Billy, oh Billy, I'm afraid for my life,
I'm afraid you mean to murder me and leave me behind.

Polly, pretty Polly, you're guessing about right,
Polly, pretty Polly, you're guessing about right,
I've been digging your grave for the best part of your life.

He stabbed her through the heart and her hot blood did flow,
He stabbed her through the heart and her hot blood did flow,
And into the grave pretty Polly did go.

He threw a little dirt over her and started for home,
He threw a little dirt over her and started for home,
Leaving nobody there but the wild birds to moan.

A debt to the devil Billy must pay,
A debt to the devil Billy must pay,
For killing pretty Polly and running away.
