166         Ballads and Songs of Michigan
4   "Your waist is slim and slender; your fingers they are small. Your cheeks too much oŁ a rosy red to face a cannon ball." "My waist is slim and slender; my fingers they are small, But never did I tremble to face a cannon ball."
5   The drums began to beat and the fifes began to play; Unto the field of battle Miss Molly marched away. The battle being over, Miss Molly looked around; Amongst the dead and wounded her darling boy she found.
6   She took him in her arms and went with him to some town And called for a physician to heal his deadly wound. And now this couple are married, and well they do agree. And now this couple are married, and why ain't you and me?
