34             Ballads and Songs of Michigan
5    Sister did scream with all her might, But I did not help her plight.
6    Out oŁ the well they dragged her then, And laid her on the lawn.
7    In the black hearse we carried her then, And buried her on the hill.
8    Peter and I were wed one day, And oh, what people did sayl
9    Sorrow and pain were in my heart, Sharp as an arrow could be.
io Peter then left for foreign parts, And I'll die oŁ a broken heart.
