The Maid Freed from the Gallows
2   O father, have you any gold for me ? Any silver to pay my fee ?
For I have stoled a golden cup And hanging it will be.
3   No, daughter, no, I have no gold for thee Nor silver to pay your fee ;
For I have come for to see you hang All on that willow tree.
Yes, true love, I have some gold for you And silver to pay your fee, For I have come for to pay your fee And take you home with me.
2 Father, father, have you gold, The gold to set me free, Or have you come to see me hung Beneath the willow tree ? 107
