No. 37
The Trooper and the Maid
3   She pulled off her lily-white gown And laid it on the table.
The soldier off with his uniform And into the bed with the lady.
4  They hadn't been laying in bed but one hour When he heard the trumpet sound.
She cried out with a thrilling cry : O Lord, O Lord, I'm ruined.
