Blacksmith A blacksmith courted meNine months and betterHe fairly won my heartWrote me a letterWith his hammer in his handHe looked quite cleverAnd if I was with my loveI′d live forever.
But where is my love goneWith his cheeks like rosesAnd his good black billycock onDecked round with primrosesI′m afraid the scorching sunWill shine and burn his beautyAnd if I was with my loveI′d do my duty.
Strange news is come to townStrange news is carriedStrange news flies up and downThat my love is married.
I wish them both much joyThough they can′t bear meAnd may God reward him wellFor the slighting of me.
Don′t you remember whenYou lay beside meAnd you said you′d marry meAnd not deny meIf I said I′d marry youIt was only for to try youSo bring your witness loveAnd I′ll not deny you.
No witness have I noneSave God AlmightyAnd may he reward you wellFor the slighting of me.
Her lips grew pale and wanIt made a poor heart trembleTo think she loved a oneAnd he proved deceitful.
A blacksmith courted meNine months and betterHe fairly won my heartWrote me a letterWith his hammer in his handHe looked quite cleverAnd if I was with my loveI′d live forever.
