RAMBLING BOY
I AM a wild and roving lad, A wild and rambling lad I'll be; For I do love a little girl And she does love me.
" O Willie, O Willie, I love you so, I love you more than I do know; And if my tongue could tell you so I'd give the world to let you know."
When Julia's old father came this to know, That Julia and Willie were loving so, He ripped and swore among them all, And swore he'd use a cannon ball.
She wrote Willie a letter with her right hand And sent it to him in the western land. " Oh, read these lines, sweet William dear. For this is the last of me you will hear."
He read those lines while he wept and cried, " Ten thousand times I wish I had died " He read those lines while he wept and said, " Ten thousand times I wish I were dead."
