The Twa Sisters
9. The miller robbed her of her gold, Sing I dum, sing I dey; The miller robbed her of her gold; The boys are bound for me. The miller robbed her of her gold But he plunged her into a deeper hole, Says I'll be kind to my true-love, If she'll be kind to me.
10. The miller was hung on a gallows so high, Sing I dum, sing I dey; The miller was hung on a gallows so high; The boys are bound for me. The miller was hung on a gallows so high; Sister Martha burnt close by, Says I'll be kind to my true-love, If she'll be kind to me.
