Unhappy Love
8    "O father, cruel father, You will die a public show
For the murdering of young Edmund That plowed the lowlands low."
9    She's gone unto the justice Her story to make known; So taken was her father, His trial it soon came on.
10 The jurymen found him guilty And hanged him also For the murdering of young Edmund That plowed the lowlands low.
ii "I'll go down by the seaside,
Where the shades they grow so green, Where once my honored lover, His blood flowed with the stream.
12 "I will set by the ebb of the ocean As it tosses to and fro; It reminds me of my Edmund Who plowed the lowlands low."
