lyrics

My horses ain't hungry.
They won't eat your hay.
So fare ye well, Polly.
I'm a-goin' away.
Your parents don't like me.
They say I'm too poor.
They say I'm not worthy
to enter your door.

Well, courting is pleasure
and parting is grief,
but a false-hearted lover
is worse than a thief.
They'll hug you and kiss you
and tell you more lies
than cross ties on a railroad
or stars in the sky.

Pretty Polly, pretty Polly,
would I be unkind
if I was to see you
and tell you my mind?
As sure as the dew drops
fall on the green corn,
last night I was with you,
tonight I am gone.

My horses ain't hungry.
They won't eat your hay.
So fare ye well, Polly.
I'm a-goin' away.
Your parents don't like me.
They say I'm too poor.
They say I'm not worthy
to enter your door.
