The Maid Freed from the Gallows
3 Daughter, daughter, I have no gold, Gold to set you free, But I have come to see you hung Beneath the willow tree.
True love, true love, I have the gold, Gold to set you free, And I shan't come to see you hung Beneath the willow tree.
D
Father, father, have you any gold ? Gold for to set me free ? Or have you come to see me hung Beneath the gallows tree ?
Son, O son, I have no gold, Gold to set you free ; I've only come to see you hung Beneath the gallows tree.
Sweetheart, sweetheart, I have gold, Gold to set you free, And I have not come to see you hung Beneath the gallows tree.
