Trad Arr.

lyrics

Little Margaret sitting in her high hall door
Combing her long yellow hair
She saw Sweet William, and his new made bride
Riding from the church so near
And she's thrown down her ivory comb
She's thrown back her long yellow hair
She said I'll go down and bid him farewell
And never more go there

Night coming in, and day being gone
When most men were asleep
Little Margaret appeared all dressed in white
Standing at their bedfeet
Saying, "How do you like your pillow?"
She said, "How do you like your sheets?
And how do you like the fair young lady
Lying in your arms fast asleep?"

Such dreams, such dreams I do not like
Such dreams, they are no good
I dreamed my floor was covered in gore
And my true love was swimming in blood
And he's gone out to the stables
And saddled up the dappled roan
And rode all day to Little Margaret's house
He rode to her house alone

Is Little Margaret in her room?
Or is she in the hall?
No, Little Margaret's in her cold black coffin
With her pale face turned to the wall
It's once he's kissed her lily-white hand
Twice he's kissed her cheek
Three times he's kissed her cold corpse lips
And fell in her arms fast asleep
