I parted a lad from the vale of my fathers,
And left Jenny Jones then a cockit young lass,
But now I’m returned a storm-beaten old mariner,
Jenny – from Jones into Morgan shall pass!
And we’ll live on our cheese and ale in contentment.
And long through our dear native valley we’ll rove
For indeed in my heart I do love that Llangollen.
And sweet Jenny Morgan too in truth I do love.
From the ‘The Favourite Welsh Ballad of Jenny Jones’
written by Charles Mathews
