(A) JOHNNY RANDALL
"Where was you last night, Johnny Randall, my son? Where was you last night, my heart's loving one?" "A-fishing, a-fowling; mother, make my bed soon, For I'm sick at my heart, and I fain would He down."
"What had you for breakfast, my own pretty boy? What had you for breakfast, my heart's loving joy?" "Fresh trout and slow poison; mother, make my bed
soon, For I'm sick at my heart, and I fain would he down."
"What will you will your brother, my own pretty boy? What will you will your brother, my heart's loving"
joy?" "My horse and my saddle; mother, make my bed soon, For I'm sick at my heart, and I fain would he down."
"What will you will your sister, my own pretty boy? What will you will your sister, my heart's loving joy? " "My watch and my fiddle, mother make my bed soon, For I'm sick at my heart, and I fain would he down."
"What will you will your mother, my own pretty boy, What will you will your mother, my heart's loving
joy?" "A twisted hemp rope, for to hang her up high; Mother, make my bed easy till I he down and die."
