Two Sisters - Lyrics

There was an old woman lived by the sea shore
Bow, balance to me
There was an old woman lived by the sea shore
And the number of daughters one, two, three, four
And I'll be true to my love if my love is true to me

There was a young man come there to see them
Bow, balance me
He brought the youngest a beaver hat
The oldest one got mad at that
And I'll be true to my love if my love is true to me

"Oh sister, oh sister, let's walk the seashore"
Bow, balance me
While these two sisters were walking the shore
The oldest pushed the youngest o'er
And I'll be true to my love if my love is true to me

"Oh sister, oh sister, please lend me your hand"
Bow, balance me
"I never, I never will lend you my hand"
But I'll have Willie and all o' his land"
And I'll be true to my love if my love is true to me

Sometimes she sank and sometimes she swam
Bow, balance me
Sometimes she sank and sometimes she swam
Until she came to the old mill dam
And I'll be true to my love if my love is true to me

The miller, he got his fishing hook
Bow, balance me
The miller, he got his fishing hook
And fished that maiden out o' the brook
And I'll be true to my love if my love is true to me

"Oh miller, oh miller, here's five gold rings"
Bow, balance me
"Oh miller, oh miller, here's five gold rings
To push the maiden in again"
And I'll be true to my love if my love is true to me

The miller received those five gold rings
Bow, balance me
The miller received the five gold rings
And pushed that maiden in again
And I'll be true to my love if my love is true to me

The miller was hung in the old mill gate
Bow, balance me
The miller was hung in the old mill gate
For drowned and pour sister Kate
And I'll be true to my love if my love is true to me

And I'll be true to my love if my love is true to me
And I'll be true to my love if my love is true to me
And I'll be true to my love if my love is true to me
