Lyrics of Blacksmith - Sheila Chandra

Blacksmith

Oh 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 so clever

And if I were with my love I would live forever

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

Oh I wish them both joy much joy
Thou they don't hear me

And may God reward him well for the slighting of me

Do you remember when you lay beside me?
And you said you'd marry me and never deign me

If I said I'd marry you twas only for to try you

Let you bring your witness love and I'll not deign you



Oh witness have I none save God almighty
And may he reward you well for this slighting of me

Her lips grew pale and warm
It made her poor heart tremble

For to think she loved but one
And he proved deceitful

Oh 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 so clever
And if I were with my love...
And if I were with my love I would live forever
