Tarrytown lyrics

by

Pete Seeger


In Tarrytown there did dwell
A lovely youth, I knew him well
He courted me my life away
But now with me he will no longer stay

Wide and deep my grave will be
With the wild goose grasses growing over me
Wide and deep my grave will be
With the wild goose grasses growing over me

There is an inn in Tarrytown
Where my love goes, and sits him down
He takes another on his knee
For she has gold and riches more than me

Widе and deep my grave will be
With the wild goosе grasses growing over me
Oh, wide and deep my grave will be
With the wild goose grasses growing over me

When I wore my apron low
He'd follow me, through rain and snow
Now that I wear my apron high
He goes right down my street and passes by

Wide and deep my grave will be
With the wild goose grasses growing over me
Wide and deep my grave will be
With the wild goose grasses growing over me

In Tarrytown there did dwell
And a lovely youth, I knew him well
He courted me my life away
But now with me he will no longer stay

Wide and deep my grave will be
With the wild goose grasses growing over me
Wide and deep my grave will be
With the wild goose grasses growing over me
