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,
ANGELS IN HEAVEN KNOW I LOVE YOU.

WRITE ME A LETTER CONTAINING THREE LINES,
ANSWER THIS QUESTION. WILL YOU BE MINE? ETC.

BUILD ME A CASTLE FORTY FEET HIGH,
SO I CAN SEE HER AS SHE RIDES BY, ETC.

Submitter comment:

MISS DAMIN HEARD THIS IN TOKYO IN 1956 FROM A DUTCH WOMAN,
MISS RUTH AMSLER. MISS AMSLER CLAIMED THAT IT CAME FROM A
TRUE STORY OF EARLY AMERICA. THE STORY WAS THAT TWO LOVERS QUARRELED
OVER THE SAME GIRL. ONE WOUNDS THE OTHER WIH A KNIFE AND FOR THIS
IS LOCKED IN A TOWER. AS HE LOOKS OUT HE SEES HIS RIVAL AND HIS LOVE
RIDING OFF WITH THEIR WEDDING PARTY, SO HE SINGS THIS SONG.
