THE TWA SISTERS: THE LORD OF THE OLD COUNTRY

There was a lord lived in the Old Country, bow down,
There was a lord lived in the Old Country, these vows were given to me;
There was a lord lived in the Old Country, and he had daughters, one, two, three;
I'll be true, true to my love,
If my love will be true to me.

"Sister, oh sister, let's us walk out, bow down
Sister, oh sister, let's us walk out, these vows were given to me;
Sister, oh sister, let's us walk out, and see the boats a-sailin' about,"
I'll be true, true to my love,
If my love will be true to me.

They walked down to the water's brim, bow down,
They walked down to the water's brim, these vows were given to me;
They walked down to the water's brim, and the oldest plunged the youngest in;
I'll be true, true to my love,
If my love will be true to me.

Down she sank, and off she swum, bow down;
Down she sank, and off she swum, these vows were given to me;
Down she sank, and off she swum, until she came to the miller's pond;
I'll be true, true to my love,
If my love will be true to me.

The miller was hung upon the Fish-gate, bow down;
The miller was hung upon the Fish-gate, these vows were given to me;
The miller was hung upon the Fish-gate, for drownin' of my sister Kate;
I'll be true, true to my love,
If my love will be true to me.
