AMERICAN BALLADS AND SONGS 15 (B) THE JEW LADY
My ball flew over in a Jew's garden,
Where no one dared to go, I saw a Jew lady in a green silk dress
A-standing by the do'.
" Come in, come in, my pretty little boy,
You may have your ball again." "I won't, I won't, I won't come in,
Because my heart is blood."
She took me then by her Uly-white hand,
And led me in the kitchen, She sot me down on a golden chair,
And fed me on sugar and rice.
She took me then by her Uly-white hand,
And led me in the kitchen, She laid me down on a golden plank,
And stobbed me Uke a sheep.
"You lay my Bible at my head,
And my prayer book at my feet, And if any of my playmates they ask for me,
Just tell them I've gone to sleep."
