32 AMERICAN BALLADS AND SONGS

"O you won't love and it's hard to be beloved And it's hard to make up your time,
You have broke the heart of many a true love, True love, but you won't break mine."
"Hangman, hangman, slack up your rope,
0 slack it for a while, I looked over yonder and I see Maw coming,
She's walked for many a long mile."
"Say Maw, say Maw, have you brought me any gold,
Any gold for to pay my fine? " "No sir, no sir, I've brought you no gold,
No gold for to pay your fine, But I'm just come for to see you hanged,
Hanged on the gallows line."
" 0 you won't love and it's hard to be beloved, And it's hard to make up your time,
You have broken the heart of many a true love, True love, but you won't break mine."
