The Gypsy Laddie
2   It's will you forsake your house and land ? And will you forsake your baby ?
And will you forsake your own wedded lord And go with the gypsy Davy ?
3   I'll forsake my house and land, And I'll forsake my baby ;
And I'll forsake my own wedded lord And go with the gypsy Davy.
4   The night before last I lay on a feather bed, Lord Thomas he lay with me.
Last night I lay on a cold straw bed
And with the calves a-bawling all around me.
