Little Willie

Traditional

When I was in my sixteenth year
Little Willie he said to me
If I would run away with him
His darlin' wife I could be

We were so far away from home
When little Willie he said to me
Go home go home, my dear little girl
My wife you can never be

My mother was so kind to me
And I know she loves me too
You took me far away from home
Why must you leave me here

It's nature nature, my dear little girl
It's nature for to be
My mind is to ramble around
And I'll bid this fair world adieu
