The Gypsy Laddie
7 O once I had a house and land, Feather-bed and money, But now I've come to an old straw pad With the gypsens all around me.
B
2   Go saddle up my milk-white horse, And go saddle up my pony,
And I will ride both night and day Till I overtake my lady.
3   How can you leave your house and land And how can you leave your baby?
And how can you leave your kind husband To go with the gypsy Davy ?
4   It's I can leave my house and land And I can leave my baby;
And I can leave my kind husband To go with the gypsy Davy.
5   Go pull off them high-heeled pumps That's made of Spanish leather, And give me your lily-white hand. We'll bid farewell for ever.
