Polly, pretty Polly, come along with me,

Before we get married some pleasures to see.
He led her over hills, and valleys so deep,
Led her over hills, and valleys so deep.
Pretty Polly mistrusted and then began to weep.

Oh, little Willie, I'm afraid of your ways.
Willie, little Willie, I'm afraid of your ways.
The way you've been ramblin', you'll lead me astray.

They went a little farther, and what did they spy?
Went up a little farther, and what did they spy?
A newly dug grave with a spade lying by.

Oh, pretty Polly, your guess is 'bout right.
Polly, pretty Polly, your guess is 'bout right.
I dug on your grave the best part of last night.

He stabbed her in her heart, and her heart's blood did flow.
Stabbed her in her heart, and her heart's blood did flow.
And into the grave pretty Polly did go.

It's a debt to the devil, Willie must pay.
A debt to the devil, Willie must pay
For killing pretty Polly and running away.
