As old as time itself.  Canadians of enough years (like me) know this music
best as the theme to the kids' TV show "The Friendly Giant".  Roger Whittaker
also did a version of the song with the lyrics.

As the quotation marks show, the song is in two (literary) voices.  All the
choruses (after each verse) are the maiden, as are the middle two verses.  But
the whole thing can be sung in male (singing) voice.

     F                       F              G
1.   Early one morning, just as the sun was rising
       F                                F        F
     I heard a maiden singing, from the valley below:

      G         (F)     F   G     (F)      F
     "Oh, don't deceive me, Oh never leave me,
     F             F      G           F
     How could you use, a poor maiden so?"

2.   "Oh gay is the garland, and fresh are the roses,
     I've culled from the garden, to bind upon thy brow."

3.   "Remember the vows, that you made to your Mary
     Remember the bow'r, where you promised to be true."

4.   Thus sang the poor maid, her sorrows bewailing,
     Thus, sang the poor maid, in the valley below:

[Repeat last line of chorus]
