The Rejected Lover
2   She took me by the hand As we stood all in the door, And the words she said to me Was to come back no more, O to come back no more.
3   I stayed away six weeks
And it caused her to complain. She wrote me a letter, saying: Come back again, O come back again.
4   I wrote her an atiswer Just for to let her know
That no young man would venture Where he once could not go, O he once could not go.
5   Come all you fair young men And a warning take by me. Never place your affections On a green growing tree,
O a green growing tree.
