The Two Sisters
9 The miller got her golden ring, The miller pushed her back again.
10 The miller was hung at his mill gate For drownding my poor sister Kate.
c
That will be true, true to my love, Love and my love will be true to me.
2   A young man came a-courting there, He took choice of the youngest there.
3   He gave this girl a beaver hat,
The oldest she thought much of that.
4  O sister, O sister, let's we walk out To see the ships a-sailing about.
5   As they walked down the salty brim, The oldest pushed the youngest in.
6   O sister, O sister, lend me your hand, And I will give you my house and land.
7   I'll neither lend you my hand or glove, But I will have your own true love.
8   Down she sank and away she swam, And into the miller's fish pond she ran.
9   The miller came out with his fish hook And fished the fair maid out of the brook.
