First place she found herself was in the mill pond.1 I'll be true, true to my love If my love be true to me.

Or a very nice damsel swimming along!" ril be true, true to my love If my love be true to me.

If you'll return me home again!" I'll be true, true to my love If my love be true to me.

Most dear to me. There was an old woman lived on the seashore Who had daughters three or four. And I'll prove true, true to my love If my love'll prove true to me.
