My Parents Treated Me Tenderly
9 I walked out one evening
All down the George's Square ; The mail coach ship had just arose, When the post-boy met me there.
10 He handed me a letter
That gave me to understand That the girl I left behind me Had wedded to another man.
ill advanced a little further, I found the news quite true; I turned myself all round about, I knew not what to do.
12 I'll serve my trade, I'll quit my woe, Bad company I'll resign ; I'll rove around from town to town For the girl I left behind.
