Abroad As I Was Walking

Abroad As I Was Walking

1. Abroad As I Was Walking ,
Down by some greenwood side,
I heard a young girl singing,
“I wish I were a bride.”

2. “I thank you, pretty fair maid,
For singing of your song;
It’s I myself shall marry you;”
“Kind sir, I am too young.”

3. “The younger, the better,
More fitting for my bride,
That all the world may plainly see
I won a pretty maid.

4. Nine times I kissed her ruby lips,
I viewed her sparkling eye;
I took her by the lily-white hand,
My lovely bride to be.
