Polly Ol iver
2   In riding all day and riding in speed
The first thing she come to was her captain indeed. She stepped up to him. What news do you bear ? Here's a kind, loving letter from Polly your dear.
3   In breaking this letter ten guineas he found.
He drunk his own health with the soldiers all round; And reading the letter, he sit and did cry, Not a-thinking Polly was nigh.
