about

Traditional, JRG.

lyrics

Willie Moore was a King his age was twenty one
he courted a damsel fair
Oh her eyes were as bright as the diamonds in the night
and wavy black was her hair

He courted her both night and day
till married she did agree
but when he went to bid her parents' consent
they said it could never be

She threw herself in Willie Moore's arms
as often times had done before
But little did he think when they parted that night
sweet Ellen would he see no more

It was about the 10th of May
a time I remember well
That very same night her body disappeared
in a way no tongue could tell

Sweet Ellen was loved both far and near,
had friends most all around
And in the little brook before the cottage door
the body of Ellen was found

She was taken by her weeping friends
and carried to her parents' room
And there she dressed in a shroud snowy white
and laid in a lonely tomb

Her parents now are left alone
One mourns and the other one weeps
And in the fresh made mound before the cottage door
the body of Ellen does sleep

This song was composed in the cloudy west
By a man you may never have seen
I will tell you his name but is not in full
His initials are JRG
