Oh, the Wind and Rain (The Two Sisters) Oh, there were two sisters come a-walking down the stream Oh, the wind and rain And one of them pushed the other one in Crying, oh, the wind and rain Johnny gave the younger one a gay gold ring Didn't give the elder one anything She pushed her sister in the river to drown And watched her as she floated down She floated 'til she came to the miller's pond Crying, Father, oh father, there swims a swan Well, the miller laid her out on the banks to dry And the fiddling fool come a-passing by Way down the road come a fiddler fair Way down the road come a fiddler fair And he's made fiddle strings of her long yellow hair And he's made fiddle strings of her long yellow hair And he's made fiddle pegs of her long finger bones And he's made fiddle pegs of her long finger bones And he's made a little fiddle body of her breast bone Whose sound would melt a heart of stone But the only tune that the fiddle could play Was, Oh, the wind and rain The only tune that the fiddle could play Was, Oh, the cruel wind and the rain Child #10 From one of Jody Stecher's records.
