17 o            Ballads and Songs of Michigan
And that would bring upon me A shame and a disgrace."
7    "Then I'll cut off these yellow locks, Men's clothing I'll put on,
And like some gallant sailor 111 go with you along.
8    "And like some gallant hero I'll go along with you.
I never should fear danger Though wicked winds may blow."
9    "The winds they blow tremendously; The wicked bullets fly;
The silver-mounted trumpets Around the dead doth lie.
io "Then if I should fall in love
With a girl so gentle, kind, and true, If I should fall in love with her, What would my Lily do?"
ii "The wind may blow tremendously, The wicked bullets fly, The silver-mounted trumpets Around the dead may he,
12    "Then if you should fall in love With a girl so gentle, kind, and true, If you should fall in love with her, Then I would love her, too.
13    "And if you should fall in love With a girl so gentle, kind, and true, I'd gently step one side, love, While she conversed with you."
14    These words they came so tenderly They pierced him to the heart. "Then we shall have a wedding, love, And that before we part."
