Eva Cassidy - Waly, Waly Lyrics

When cockle shells turn into silvery bells,
then will my love return to me.
When roses grow in the wintery snow,
then will my love return to me.

Oh waly, waly, love be by me
and bright as a jewel when first new...

But love grows old, and waxes cold,
and fades away like morning dew.

There is a ship, it sails the sea,
It's loaded high and (as) deep can be.
But not so deep as my love for you.
I know not if I sink or swim.

Oh waly, waly, love be by me
Bright as a jewel when first new...

But love grows old and waxes cold,
and fades away like morning dew

    Stunning. No singer, not one, takes me where she does. Ethereal; exquisite, beautiful. I cannot stop listening to her - a beautiful Songbird.

  8. Damion Pegley

    I wish you could identify the people who downvote things on YouTube, I would ask the people who have downvoted this amazing rendition about their reasoning behind their downvote.

    Personally, I can find zero fault in this recording - its up there with Norah Jones' cover of Black Hole Sun, something to come back and visit time and time again.

    Stunning there is a better version though and her voice is so beautifully haunting and ethereal ❤️ adore her

  17. Ella Zoé

    I love it

  18. Michel de Kort

    So incredible song/voice love you Eva

  19. Martin Gibson

    Wonderful song, beautifully sung...but it's not the best version. The best version has so much more emotion, particularly when she sings 'Oh waly waly' in the second verse. Sadly that version which was on You Tube has been removed and now seems to be unavailable. Tragedy really as it was undoubtedly Eva at her very best.


    It's available on the CD 'Eva by Heart'... you're right, it's the best version.

    Jon Lawton

    you can hear the better version on dailymotion,


    This version is FAR superior to the cd version imo.

  20. ShindigTV

    My favorite singer--thank you for this "new" song!!!

  21. Brenda McBean

    So completely calming. A true gift in today's world. Thank you.

  22. Charlie W

    Heavenly beautifull....
    She will live on for ever in her music.


    Wow, yet another favorite from Eva.

  24. Joop van Eijk - Slootweg
