When will you come again, my faithful Johnny?
When the corn is gathered,
when the leaves are withered,
I will come again, my sweet and bonnie, I will come again.

Then winter's winds will blow, my faithful Johnny,
Though the day be dark with drift,
that I cannot see the lift,
I will come again, my sweet and bonnie, I will come again.

Then will you meet me here, my faithful Johnny?
Though the night were Hallowe’en,
when the fearful sights are seen
I would meet thee here, my sweet and bonnie, I would meet thee here.
