John Hardy
6   John Hardy's sister was a-standing round. O John, what have you done ?
I've killed me a man in the Shunny Camps, This day I'm condemned to be hung, I do know, This day I'm condemned to be hung.
7   O who will shoe your pretty little feet, And who will glove your hands ?
And who will kiss your rosy red cheeks When I'm laid in the cold, cold ground ?
8   My papa will shoe my pretty little feet, My mamma will glove my hands,
My sweetheart will kiss my rosy red cheeks When you're laid in the cold, cold ground.
9  O where did you get your pretty little shoes ?
0  where did you get your dress ?
1  bought my shoes from a railroad man, Got my dress from a man in the mine.
