Anachie Gordon

Traditional. Arrangement Mary Black
Harking is bonnie And there lives my love My heart lies on him And will not remove It will not remove Oh for all that I have done Oh I never will forget my love Anachie For Anachie Gordon He's bonnie and he's rough He'd entice any woman that ever he saw He'd entice any woman and so he has done me Oh I never will forget my love Anachie Down came her father and he's standing by the door Saying Jeannie you're trying the tricks of a whore You care nothing for a man who cares so very much for thee You must marry Lord Sulton and leave Anachie For Anachie Gorden, he's barely but a man Although he may be pretty but where are his lands? Oh the Sulton's lands are broad and his towers they run high You must marry Lord Sulton and leave Anachie With Anachie Gordon I'd beg for my bread And before I'll marry Sulton it's gold to my head With gold to my head and gowns fringed to the knee And I'll die if I don't get me love Anachie And you that are my parents to Church you may me bring But unto Lord Sulton I'll never bear a song To a son or a daughter, I'll never bow my knee And I'll die if I don't get me love Anachie Jeannie was married and from church she was brought home And when she and her maidens so merry should have been When she and her maidens so merry should have been She went into her chambers she cried all alone Come to bed now Jeannie me honey and my sweet For to style you my mistress it would be so sweet Be it mistress or Jeannie it's all the same to me But in your bed Lord Sulton I never will lie And down came her father and he's spoken with reknown Saying you that are her maidens go loosen off her gowns But she fell down to the floor so close down by his knee Saying father look I'm dying for me love Anachie The day that Jeannie married was the day that Jeannie died And the day that yound Anachie came home on the tide And down came her maidens all wringing of their hands Saying oh it's been so long you've spent so long on the sands Oh so long on the sands, so long on the flood They have married your Jeannie and now she lies dead You that are her maidens go take me by the hand And take me to the chamber that me love she lies in And he's kissed her cold lips till his heart has turned to stone And he's died in the chamber that his love she lies in
