2   I won't come in, or I won't sit down, Or stay all night with thee,
For there is another pretty girl in old Scotland That I love more better than thee.
3   She had a sharp knife within her right hand, She pierced him heartilee.
4  I will come down and I must come down And stay all night with thee.
There is nary nother pretty girl in old Scotland That I love more better than thee.
5   O live, Lord Henry, she cried, One hour, or two, or three,
And all these costly cards I wear around my waist I'll freely give them unto thee.
6   I can't live, nor I won't live, One hour, nor two, nor three,
And all the costly cards you wear around your waist Will do no good for me.
7   She tuk him by his lily-white hand, She drug him to the well,
Which you know was cold and deep. She says ....
8   Lie there, love Henry, she cried,
Till the flesh all rots off your poor bones And all your pretty girls in old Scotland Will mourn for your return. 52
