Denny, Sandy - Seven Virgins (The Leaves Of Life) Lyrics




All under the leaves and the leaves of life
I met with virgins seven
And one of them was Mary mild
Our Lord's best mother in heaven

"Oh what are you seeking, my seven pretty maids
All under the leaves of life"
"We are seeking for no leaves, Thomas
But for a friend of thine"

"Go down, go down into yonder town
And sit in the gallery
And there you'll see Sweet Jesus Christ
Nailed to a big yew tree"

So down they went into yonder town
And sat in the gallery
And there they saw Sweet Jesus Christ
Nailed to a big yew tree

Yes, down they went into yonder town
As fast as foot could follow
And many a sad and a lonely tear
From them virgin's eyes did fall

    Thank you so much for sharing this. One of my favourite traditional folk songs and this is a lovely version I hadn't heard before.

    All under the leaves and the leaves of life
    I met with virgins seven
    And one of them was mary mild,
    Our lord's best mother in heaven.
    ``oh what are you seeking, my seven pretty maids,
    All under the leaves of life? ''
    ``we are seeking for no leaves, thomas,
    But for a friend of thine.''
    ``go down, go down into yonder town
    And sit in the gallery
    And there you'll see sweet jesus christ,
    Nailed to a big yew tree.''
    So down they went into yonder town
    And sat in the gallery
    And there they saw sweet jesus christ,
    Nailed to a big yew tree.
    Yes down they went into yonder town
    As fast as foot could follow
    And many a sad and a lonely tear
    From them virgin's eyes did fall.
