A Maiden's Prayer

A man came home from work one night
To find his house without a light
He went upstairs to go to bed
When a sudden thought came to his head

He walked into his daughters room
And found her hanging from a beam
He took his knife and he cut her down
And on her breast this note he found

My love was for that sailor boy
Who travels far across the sea
Sometimes I've often thought of him
But I know he never thinks of me

I wish my baby had been born
Then all my troubles would be over
But tell my love we'll meet again
Over yonder on that golden shore

So dig my grave and dig it deep
And place white lilies at my feet
And on my breast a turtle dove
To show that I have died for love

We dug her grave and we dug it deep
We placed white lilies at her feet
And on her breast a turtle dove
To show that she had died for love
To show that she had died for love
