The Cruel Brother
14  Go tell her to take them to yonders stream, For my heart's blood is in every seam.
15   It's what will you will to your sister Anne ? My new gold ring and my silver fan.
16   It's what will you will to your brother John's wife? In grief and sorrow the balance of her life.
17   It's what will you will to your brother John's son? It's God for to bless and to make him a man.
18   It's what will you will to your brother John ? A rope and a gallows for to hang him on.
