No. 46
Edwin in the Lowlands Low
A
2   Young Emily in net chamber, She dreamed an awful dream ;
She dreamed she saw young Edward's blood
Go flowing like the stream.
She rose so early in the morning
And dressed herself although
To go and see young Edward,
Who ploughed the lowlands low.
3   O father, where's that stranger Came here last night to dwell ? His body's in the ocean
And you no tales must tell. O father, O father, you'll die a public show For the murdering of young Edward Who ploughed the lowlands low.
4  Away then to some councillor To let the deeds be known. The jury found him guilty His trial to come on.
On trial they found him guilty And hanged was to be For the murdering of young Edward, Who ploughed the lowlands low.
