Lyrics

Hey 'round the corner
Beneath the berry tree
Along the foot path, behind the bush
Looking for Henry Lee
Tonight all the folks who cut the corn
Tonight I’ll be glad that I was born
For my Henry Lee I’ll see; he’ll be cutting corn with me
And we’ll meet beneath the bitter berry tree
Hey 'round the corner
Beneath the berry tree
Along the foot path, behind the bush
Looking for Henry Lee
Tonight all the stars are shining bright
Tonight all the corn fields are a sight
I have reached the meeting spot but my Henry Lee has not
And I wonder can it be that he forgot
Hey 'round the corner
Beneath the berry tree
Along the foot path, behind the bush
Looking for Henry Lee
Tonight as the moon begins to sink
Tonight there are footsteps which I think
Will at last bring him to me, my beloved Henry Lee
But I don’t see why so late he has to be
Hey 'round the corner
Beneath the berry tree
Along the foot path, behind the bush
Looking for Henry Lee
I told Henry Lee to go away
But now I am sad he didn’t stay
And tomorrow night if he comes a-looking round for me
I’ll be sittin' 'neath the bitter berry tree
Hey 'round the corner
Beneath the berry tree
Along the foot path, behind the bush
Looking for Henry Lee
