The Two Brothers
8 He buried his bible at his head, His hymn book at his feet, His bow and arrow by his side, And now he's fast asleep.
2 You're not the one that loves Susie, And here I'll spill your blood.
He drew a knife both keen and sharp And pierced it through his heart.
3 What will you tell my father dear When he calls for his son John ?
I'll tell him you're in the western woods A-learning your hounds to run.
4 What will you tell my mother dear When she calls for her son John ? I'll tell her you're in the Tennessee A lesson there to learn.
5 What will you tell my pretty Susie When she calls for true love John ? I'll tell her you're in your silent grave, Where never no more to return.
6 She took her bible in her hand, A-moaning she went on.
She moaned till she came to his silent grave. In search of her true love John.
