    Lyrics

    WHEN I WAS A YOUNG GIRL
    TRADITIONAL

    When I was a young girl I used to see pleasure
    When I was a young girl I used to drink ale
    Right out of the ale house and into the jail house
    Right out of the bar room and down to my grave
    Come mama come papa sit you beside me
    Come mama come papa and pity my case
    My poor heart is aching my heart it is breaking
    My body salve-aided and I'm bound to die
    Go send for the preacher to come and pray for me
    Go send for the doctor to heal up my
    My poor heart is aching my heart it is breaking
    My body salve-aided and hell is my home
    I want three young ladies to bear up my coffin
    I want three young ladies to take me along
    I want them to carry a bunch of wild roses
    To put on my body as I pass along
    One morning one morning in May
    One morning one morning in May
    I spy this young lady all clad in white linen
    All clad in white linen cold as a clay
    When I was a young girl I used to see pleasure
    When I was a young girl I used to drink ale
    Right out of the bar room
    Right out of the ale house and into the jail house
    Right out of the bar room down to my grave
