Melody - Traditional Southern Welsh; Seq. by Randy Ralph
Line

Low ye hills in ocean lie
Hob y derri dando
Hide not Meirion from my eye
Hob y derri dando
Still one view oh let me take
Down derri down
Ere my longing heart do break
Chorus: Down down hie derri down
My darling Mary do not frown
Down down hie derri down
My darling Mary do not frown.

2. O'er the seas hath flown my heart
Hob y derri dando
O'er the seas my sighs depart
Hob y derri dando
And o'er the seas must she be sought
Down derri down
Who lives yet always in my thought
Chorus:

3. 'Neath the seas shall I reside
Hob y derri dando
'Neath the water and the tide
Hob y derri dando
For my longing heart did break
Down derri down
When she another love did take
Chorus:

Wyt ti'n hoffi dyri, Derwydd?
Hob y deri dando,
Unwaith oerais i o'th herwydd,
Dyna ganu eto;
Ym mhob ardal y mae brydôn,
Canig hen y co',
Pwy na allant ddweud penillion hen gân co',
Canig hen y co' Hob y deri dan y to.

2. Buom unwaith yn gariadon,
Hob y deri dando,
Ti a geisiasist dorri 'nghalon,
Dyna ganu eto;
Am funudyn pwy fu'n
Hidio druan am dy dro?
Deri dando, wyt ti'n gwrando hen gân co'?
Canig hen y co', Hob y deri dan y to.
