A Maid That's Deep In Love

Pentangle
Lingua: Inglese



I am a maid that's deep in love
But, yes, I can complain
I have in this world but one true love
And Jimmy is his name
And if I do not find my love
I'll morn most constantly
And I'll find and follow Jimmy thro'
The lands of liberty

Then I'll put up my yellow hair
Men's clothing I'll wear on
I'll sign to a bold sea captain
My passage I'll work free
And I'll find and follow Jimmy thro'
The lands of liberty

One night upon the raging sea
As we were going to bed
The captain cried farewell my boy
I wish you were a maid
Your rosy cheeks, your rosy lips
They are enticing me
And I wish dear God with all my heart
A maid you were to me

Then hold your tongue dear captain
Such talk is all in vain
And if, and the sailors find it out
They'll laugh and make much game
For when we reach Columbia shore
Some prettier girls you'll find
And you'll laugh and sing and court with them
For courting you are inclined

It was not three days after
Our ship it reached the shore
Adieu my loving captain
Adieu for evermore
For once I was a sailor on sea
But now I'm a maid on the shore
So adieu to you and all your crew
With you I'll sail no more

Come back, come back my own pretty maid
Come back and marry me
I have ten thousand pounds in gold
And that I'll give to thee
So come back, come back my own pretty maid
Come back and marry me
