Lyrics

A blacksmith courted me
Nine months and better
He fairly won my heart
He wrote me a letter
With his hammer in his hand
He looked so clever
And if I were with my love
I would live forever

Oh where is my love gone
With his cheeks like roses?
He is gone across the sea
Gathering primroses
I'm afraid the shining sunne
Might burn and scorch his beauty
And if I were with my love
I would do my duty

Strange news has come to town
Strange news is carried
Strange news flies up and down
That my love is married
For I wish them both much joy
Though they don't hear me
And if I were with my love
I would do my duty

Oh what did you promise me
When you lay beside me?
You said you'd marry me
And not deny me
If I said I'd marry you
It was only to try you!
So bring your witness, love
And I'll not deny you

A witness have I none
Save God Almighty!
And may he reward you well
For the slighting of me
Her lips grew pale and wan
It made a poor heart tremble
For to think she's loved one
And would proved deceitful

A blacksmith courted me
Nine months and better
He fairly won my heart
He wrote me a letter
With his hammer in his hand
He looked so clever
And if I were with my love
I would live forever
