168 Ballads and Songs of Michigan
"For to lie with the captain is a delicate thing; Fm a new listed soldier and I'll fight for my king."
8 It was early next morning pretty Polly arose; She dressed herself up in her own wearing clothes. The captain he viewed her from her head to her toes; Then flying to her arms, "Love, how do you do?"
9 This couple got married, I've heard people say.
They had no one to attend them on their wedding day.
The trouble is o'er and the war is no more,
"You're welcome to my arms, pretty Polly, once more."
The Gernsey manuscript. A good text of ten stanzas similar to A.
