"Cambridge Town" as written by and Nick Garrie-hamilton....
I met my love in Cambridge Town
The waters they still run beside the mill
I called his name in the morning frost
The waters they still run beside the mill
“Oh where have you been, these ten days three
Why is it, you stay away from me?”
“I stay from you
(He answered me)
For my heart is no longer free”

O hush sweet love you ... frighten me
Tomorrow I must married be
Your words are daggers, that cannot be
Tomorrow I shall married be

You asked my hand, my life I gave
The love we shared binds you to me
Alas fair maid, that love is dead and tomorrow I am to be wed

I walked alone in Cambridge Town
The waters they still run beside the mill
I spied my love inside his home
The waters they still run beside the mill
I called his name in the morning frost
My true love he hid his face from me
“I shed bitter tears for the girl I had lost”
But the waters they still run beside the mill
