W: W:Saying "Cruel was my father, who barred the door on me W:And cruel was my mother, a dreadful crime to see. W:Cruel was my own true love, who changed his love for gold W:And cruel were the wintery winds that pierced my heart with cold." W: W:For the taller that a pine tree grows the sweeter is the bark W:And the fairer that a young man speaks, the falser is his heart W:For he'll kiss you and caress you till they think they have you won W:Then they'll go away and leave you all for some other one. W: W:So come all you pretty fair young maids a warning take by me W:And never try and build your nest on top of any tall tree W:For the green leaves they will wither and the roots will decay W:And the blushes of a false young man will soon all fade away. W: W:Version 2: W: W:It was in the month of January, the hills were clad in snow W:When over hills and valleys my true love he did go W:It was there I spied a pretty fair maid with a salt tear in her eye W:She had a baby in her arms and bitter she did cry. W: W:"Oh cruel was my father, that barred the door on me W:And cruel was my mother, this dreadful crime to see W:Cruel was my own true love, to change his mind for gold W:And cruel was that winter's night that pierced my heart with cold." W: W:For the taller that the palm tree grows the sweeter is the bark W:And the fairer that a young man speaks, the falser is his heart W:He will kiss you and embrace you till he thinks he has you won W:Then he'll go away and leave you all for some other one. W: W:Now all you pretty fair maids a warning take by me W:And never try to build your nest on top of a high tree W:For the leaves they will all wither and the branches will decay W:And the beauties of a false young man will all soon fade away.
