Waly Waly
Eva Cassidy Lyrics


When cockleshells turn to silvery bells
Then will my love return to me
When roses bloom in the wintry snow
Then will my love return to me

Oh waly waly love be Bonnie
And bright as a jewel when it's first new
But love grows old and waxes cold
And fades away like morning dew
There is a ship it's sailing the sea
It's loaded high and deep can be
But not so deep as my love for you
I know not if I'll sink or swim

Oh waly waly love be Bonnie
And bright as a jewel when it's first new
But love grows old and waxes cold
And fades away like morning dew

I so wish I could replicate her beautiful voice! Here is an updated set of lyrics for 2021:

When cockleshells turn to silver bells
Then will I trust Johnson’s honesty ……
When roses grow in the winter’s snow
Then can I trust what is said to me

Oh waley, waley, let me follow the guidance that says what we have to do …
But trust grows cold, when half-truths are told, and fades away like morning dew.

When someone breaks the rules he makes
And all around are condemning him.
But then we hear he is in the clear –
I know not if I sink or swim

Oh waley, waley, I will follow the guidance that says what we have to do…
But trust grows cold, when half-truths are told, and fades away like morning dew.

When a test is done and counted more than one
How can I trust Johnson’s honesty?
Wear a mask, wear it not, does it matter a jot?
How can I trust what is said to me?

Oh waley, waley, let me follow the guidance that says what we have to do…
But trust grows cold, when half-truths are told, and fades away like morning dew. .....

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.

I think there are people who will argue with anything just to aggrandize themselves. Eva is such a beautiful singer I can't imagine what they would be saying.

Eva’s pitch is perfectly centered .... exceptional voice with real feeling. Miss her.

Allan Payne

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

Damion Pegley
