lyrics

A poor man’s child with a nobleman’s name;
I’ve toiled this earth for the wealthy man’s gain.
A good soul at heart with a beauty so fair;
Handsome and lovely, handsome and lovely

But he with that two face, he beckoned me in.
Made me feel humbled, he tricked me he tricked me,
He ruined my life! He ruined my life!
Spoiled my innocence forever trapped me.

See, I had a baby and I named him sorrow,
Let me hold him tonight and I’ll bury him tomorrow,
But it won’t be in the graveyard ‘cos I had me a bastard child.
I’ll dig him a hole and I’ll pray for him after.
But where is my Angel, who promised to save me?
Who made me feel loved and called me a lady?
He who is blameless and I with the sin.
Mother, you didn’t warn me of the danger of men.

The Dairy, oh The Dairy, where I lived so long;
Where I would rise, healthy and strong.
He watched me all day to the clock’s slow beat.
He whispered so softly, sweet words to me.

But I was the one who finished us both;
Caused us such sadness, I who he loved the most.
I struck the blow and it ruined my life!
Look to your wife, Sir, look to your wife

See I had a baby and I named him sorrow
Let me hold him tonight and I’ll bury him tomorrow
But it won’t be in the graveyard ‘cos I had me a bastard child
I’ll dig him a hole and I’ll pray for him after
But where is my Angel who promised to save me?
Who made me feel loved and called me a lady?
He who is blameless and I with the sin.
Mother you didn’t warn me of the danger of men.
