JACK HE WENT A-SAILING.
1.       O Jack, he went a-sailing With trouble on his mind To leave his native country, His darling- dear behind.
And I am left alone, And I am left alone.
2.       She dressed herself in man's array And apparel she put on;
Unto the field of battle
She marched her men along-.
3.       Your cheeks too red and rosy, Your fingers neat and small, Your waist too slim and slender To face a cannon ball.
4.       My cheeks are red and rosy, My fingers neat and small,
But it would not change my countenance To see ten thousand fall.
5.       The battle being ended She rode the circle round,
And through the dead and dying Her darling dear she found.
6.       She picked him up all in her arms, She carried him down to town, And sent for a London doctor
To heal his bleeding wounds.
7.       This couple they got married, So well did they agree.
This couple they got married, And why not you and me?
