[Verse 1]
"Get down, get down, Love Henry," she cried
"And stay all night with me
I have gold chains, and the finest I have
I'll apply them all to thee."

[Verse 2]
"I can't get down and I shan't get down
Or stay all night with thee
Some pretty little girl in Cornersville
I love far better than thee."

With a penny knife that she held in her hand

[Verse 4]
"Get well, get well, Love Henry, " She cried
"Get well, get well," said she
"Oh don't you see my own heart's blood
Come flowin' down so free?"

[Verse 5]
She took him by his long yellow hair
And also by his feet
She plunged him into well water, where

"And light on my right knee

And light on your right knee
A girl who would murder her own true love
Would kill a little birdlike me."
