Sung by Mrs. Miner Griffin
The Charming Beauty Bright
Once I courted a charming beauty bright,
Upon her I placed my whole heart's delight,
I courted her for love, and love I did obtain;
Oh, had I any reason at all to complain?
But when her parents came to know,
That me and their daughter together would go, /severe,
They locked her up, they bound her, they chained her so
I never, nevermore could lay hands upon my dear.
Three times a day to her window I would go,
To see if my love had forsaken me or no,
But when I got there, she made me this reply, /die.
Saying, I love the man that loves me, I'll love him till I
Away to the army I thought it best to go,
To see if I could forget my love or no,
but when I got there, the armor shone so bright,
The chiefest of my thoughts was my whole heart's delight.
Seven months alone I thought I would serve my king,
At the end of seven months, I returned home again,
When her mother saw me coming, she wrung her hands and cried,
Saying, Once my daughter loved you, and for your sake she
And there I stood like a man that was slain,
The tears from my eyes fell like showers of rain,
Come, all ye true lovers, come pity, pity me,
Come pity my misfortune and see my misery.
