Ballads and Songs of Michigan
ii "O sister, have you brought the ball, And come to set me free? Or have you come to see me die Beneath the gallows tree?"
12    "I have not brought the golden ball, Nor come to set you free;
But I have come to see you die Beneath the gallows tree."
13    "O hangman, hangman, hold you ropes,
0  hold them for a while;
1 think I see my sweetheart's face, A many, a many a mile.
14    "O sweetheart, have you brought the ball, And come to set me free?
Or have you come to see me die Beneath the gallows tree?'*
15    "I have not come to see you die Beneath the gallows tree;
For I have brought the golden ball, And come to set you free."
