A blacksmith courted me
He fairly won my heart
With his hammer in his hand
And if I was with my love

With his cheeks like roses
Decked round with primroses
Will shine and burn his beauty
I'd do my duty.
Strange news is coming to town
Strange mews flies up and down
I wish them both much joy
And may God reward him well

You lay beside me
And not deny me
It was only for to try you
And I'll not deny you.
No witness have I none
And may he reward you well
Her lips grew pale and wan
It made a poor heart tremble
And be proved deceitful.
A blacksmith courted me
He fairly won my heart
With his hammer in his hand
And if I was with my love
