I cannot go and ask my mother, For she is on her bed of rest, And by her side, a silver dagger, To pierce the heart I love the best.

Oh Katie dear go ask your father, If you might be a bride of mine, If he says "yes”, then come and tell me, If he says "no", let's run away.

I cannot go and ask my father, For he is on his bed of rest, And by his side, a silver dagger, To pierce the heart I love the best.

So he picked up that silver dagger, And he pierced it through his loving breast, Farewell Katy, farewell darling, I'll die for the one I love the best.

So she picked up that bloody weapon, And she pierced it through her snow white breast, Farewell mama, farewell papa, I'll go with the one I love the best.

coda:

I'll go with the one I love the best.
