Maine Lumberjacks            93
17     Now as the 'sizes
Are drawing to a close, Presently the judge Will sentence on me pass.
18     At the close of my confinement
They'll hang me to a tree. Adieu to my poor mistress, For she has ruined me.
19     Now all you young people,
Who my wretched fate do see, Don't glory in my downfall; I pray you pity me.
20     Knowing I am innocent,
I bid this world adieu. Adieu to my poor Mary dear! I die for loving you.
