lyrics

THE BLACKSMITH

A blacksmith courted me
Nine months and better
He fairly won my heart
Wrote me a letter

With his hammer in his hand
He looked quite clever
And if I was with my love
I'd live for ever

But where is my love gone
With his cheeks like roses?
And his good black Billycock on
Decked round with primroses?

I'm afraid the scorching sun
Will shine and burn his beauty
And if I was with my love
I'd do my duty

Strange news is come to town
Strange news is carried
Strange news flies up and down
That my love is married

I wish them both much joy
Though they can't hear me
And may God reward him well
For the slighting of me

Don't you remember when
You lay beside me?
And you said you'd marry me
And not deny me?

If I said I'd marry you
It was only for to try you
So bring your witness love
And I'll not deny you

No, witness I have none
Save God Almighty
And may he reward you well
For the slighting of me

Her lips grew pale and wan
It made her poor heart tremble
To think she loved that one
And he proved deceitful

A blacksmith courted me
Nine months and better
He fairly won my heart
Wrote me a letter

With his hammer in his hand
He looked quite clever
And if I was with my love
I'd live forever
