FAIR MARGARET AND SWEET WILLIAM
twixt LaŚd.y Mar-g'ret and you.11
3.     Lady Margaret was standing in her own bowery-door2
A-combing up her hair, When who should she see but Sweet William and his bride To the church as they passed by.
4.     She quickly dropped her ivory comb,
And tied her hair all before, And out of that door went a gay lady That was never seen there any more.
5.     The day being gone and the night coming on
When men were all asleep, Sweet William he saw Lady Margaret's ghost A-standing at his bed's feet.
* For bower door.
