When she turned around the tears fell from her eyes,
Saying false young man you have deluded me.

Three diamond rings to wear on your right hand,
But the vows you made, love, you went and broke them
And married the lassie that had the land.

Now at night when I go to my bed of slumber
The thoughts of my true love run in my mind.
When I turned around to embrace my darling
Instead of gold 'tis brass I find.

And I wish the queen would call home her army
From the West Indies, America and Spain,
And every man to his homeland would run
And l in hope that we'd meet again.
Then I roved out one bright May morning...
