Verse

COnce there was a Fshepherd lad kept Csheep upon the Ghill An he's Claid his pipe and his Fcrook aside and Cthere he's Gslept his Cfill. CHe woke up on a Friverbank on a Cfine May Gmornin, And Cthere he spied a Flady swimming in the Cclothes that Gshe was Cborn in. F So he raised his head from his green bed and he approached the maid. "Put on yer claithes, my dear," he says, "and do not be afraid. It's fitter for a lady fair to sew a silken seam Than to rise on a fine May morning and swim against the stream." "Well, if you'll not touch my mantle and you'll leave my claithes alane, Then I'll give you all the money, sir, that you can carry hame." "I'll not touch your mantle and I'll leave yer claithes alane, But I'll tak you out of the clear water, my dear, to be my ane." An' he's taen her oot o the clear water and he's rowed her in his arms. "Put on yer claithes, my dear," he says, "and hide your bounteous charms." He'Fs put her on Ca milk white steed himFself uCpon anGother, And it's Call along the Fway they rode like Csister Gand like Fbrother.

She rode intae her faither's gate and she's tirled at the pin, And ready stood a porter there to let the fair maid in. When the gates were opened, it's so nimbly she stepped in. She said, "Kind sir, you are a fool without and I'm a maid within. "So fare thee weel, my modest boy. I thank you for your care, But had you done as you desired, I'd never have left you there. FI will sew no Csilken seam on a Ffine CMay Gmorning. You can Cbide your time till your Ftime runs out, so Ctake this Gas fair Cwarning." FI will sew no Csilken seam on a Ffine CMay Gmorning. You can Cbide your time till your Ftime runs out, so Ctake this Gas fair Cwarning."
