The Two Brothers
5   It's take me up all on your back And carry me to yonder churchyard. And dig my grave both wide and deep And gentle lie me down.
6   What will you tell your father When he calls for his son John ?
You can tell him I'm in some low green woods A-leaming young hounds to run.
7   What will you tell your mother When she calls for her son John ?
You can tell her I'm in some graded school, Good scholar to never return.
8   What will you tell your true love When she calls for her dear John ?
You can tell her I'm in some lonesome grave, My books to carry home.
9   One sweet kiss from your clay, clay lips Will bring my day short on.
D
2 O what do you want with me, young Suse,
0  what do you want with me ?
1  want one kiss from your sweet lips And then I can rest in peace.
