Lady Isabel and the Elf Knight
2   Turn yourself all round and about With your face turned toward the sea. And she picked him up so manfully And over'd him into the sea.
3   Pray help me out, pray help me out, Pray help me out, says he,
And I'll take you to the old Scotland And there I will marry thee.
4   Lie there, you false-hearted knight, Lie there instead of me,
For you stripped me as naked as ever I was born, But I'll take nothing from thee.
5   She jumped upon the milk-white steed And she led the dapple grey,
And she rode back to her father's dwelling Three long hours before day.
