Ron Clarke

This is an English tune circa 1840. it is very similar to Sweet Lovely Joan (if a bit more bawdy). Come listen a while
and I'll sing you a song
Of three merry gentlemen
riding along.
They met with Sweet Joan
and to her did say,
I'm afraid this cold morning
will do you some harm.

O no kind sir,
the maiden said,
This cold morning
will do me no harm.
There's one thing I crave
lies betwixt your legs,
If you give me that,
it will keep me warm.

He got off his horse
- she mounted it quick.
Looking the gentleman
hard in the face
Says, You knew not my meaning,
you wrong understand me.
And away she went galloping
down the green lane.
