maddy prior – i heard the bans lyrics

Loading...

i heard the banns published in church-
i rose from my seat and went out in the porch
i thought he’d be constant, as constant could be
but now he is going to be married

i saw my love in the church stand
with a ring an his finger and a glove in his hand
i thought to myself i should have been that one
but now he is going to be married

i saw my love to the church go
with bride and bridesmaidens they made a fine show
and i followed on with my burden of woe
for now he is tied to some other

i saw my love sit down to eat
i sat down beside him but nothing could eat
i thought his sweet company better that meat
but now he is gone to some other

dig me a grave long, wide and deep
and cover it over with flowers so sweet
that i may lie down there to take a long sleep
and that’s the best way to forget him
