    Lyrics

    I am a poor young girl
    That's straight from Callander
    I'm in search of Lord Gregory
    Pray God I find him!
    The rain beats my yellow locks
    And the dew wets me still
    My babe is cold in my arms
    Lord Gregory, let me in!"

    "Lord Gregory's not here and
    Henceforth can't be seen
    For he's gone to bonny Scotland
    For to bring home his new queen
    So leave now these windows
    And likewise this hall
    For it's deep in the sea
    You should hide your downfall."

    "Who'll shoe my babe's little feet?
    Who'll put gloves on her hand?
    Who will tie my babe's middle
    With a long linen band?
    Who'll comb my babe's yellow hair
    With an ivory comb?
    Who will be my babe's father
    Till Lord Gregory comes home?

    Do you remember, love Gregory
    That night in Callander
    Where we changed pocket handkerchiefs
    And me against my will?
    For yours was pure linen, love
    And mine but coarse cloth
    For yours cost a guinea, love
    And mine but one groat

    Do you remember, love Gregory
    That night in Callander
    Where we changed rings on our fingers
    And me against my will?
    For yours was pure silver, love
    And mine was but tin
    For yours cost a guinea, love
    And mine but one cent."

    "And my curse on you, Mother
    My curse being sore!
    Sure, I dreamed the girl I love
    Came a-knocking at my door."

    "Sleep down you foolish son
    Sleep down and sleep on:
    For it's long ago that weary girl
    Lies drownin' in the sea."

    "Well go saddle me the black horse
    The brown, and the gray
    Go saddle me the best horse
    In my stable to-day!
    And I'll range over mountains
    Over valleys so wide
    Till I find the girl I love
    And I'll lay by her side."
