lyrics

I am a poor young girl, come straight from Cappoquin,
In search of Lord Gregory, pray God I find him.

The rain beats on my yellow hair, and the dew wets me still,
My babe is cold in my arms, Lord Gregory let me in.

Lord Gregory is not here and hence forth can't be seen,
For he's gone to bonny Scotland to bring home his new Queen.

So leave now these windows and likewise this hall,
For it's deep in the sea you should hide your downfall.

But who'll shoe my babe's little feet, and who'll put gloves on her hands?
Who'll tie up her middle with a long linen band?

Do you remember Lord Gregory, that night in Cappoquin?
We traded pocket handkerchiefs, and me against my will.
For yours were pure linen, love, and mine but coarse cloth.
And yours cost a guinea love, and mine but one groat.

Do you remember Lord Gregory, that night in Cappoquin?
When we traded rings on our fingers love, and me against me will.
For yours were pure silver, and mine were by tin
And yours cost a fortune love, and mine but one cent.

Deep it is you'll find me in a deep and silent grave.
Deep it was I suffered for the sweet gifts that your gave.
Now you can't be with me, as you were oft at the start.
Deep and cruel waves shall wash away my broken heart.

A curse on you mother, my curse being so,
That I dreamt my own true love came a knocking on the door.

Oh lie now my foolish son, lie down now and sleep,
For it's not but a serving girl who lies drowned dead in the deep.

Go saddle me my black horse, oh the brown and the grey,
Go and saddle me my fastest horse in the stable today.

I will ride over mountains and over valleys so wide,
Until I find my own true love, and lay down at her side.
