No. 57
The Lover's Lament
2   Away together, together we did go.
Here comes her old father this for to know.
He put her in a room and he locked her up so severely,
That he never got to see you, my dear.
3   Away to the window, to the window she did go To see whether he could see his love or no.
The answer that she made him with the tears all in her eyes, She loved the man that loved her and she'd love him till she died.
4   Away to the wars, to the wars he did go,
To see whether he could forget his love or no.
He served one long year, he served his king,
And in one more long year he returned home again.
