"The Blacksmith" as written by and Geoff Smith....
A blacksmith courted me
Nine months and better
He fairly won my heart
Wrote me a letter
With his hammer in his hand
He looked so clever
And if I was with my love
I would live forever

But where is my love gone
With his cheeks like roses
And his good black Billycock on
Decked around with primroses
I fear the shining sun
May burn and scorch his beauty
And if I was with my love
I would do my duty

Strange news is come to town
Strange news is carried
Strange news flies up and down
That my love is married
I wish them both much joy
Though they can't hear me
And may God reward him well
For the slighting of me

Don't you remember when
You lay beside me
And you said you'd marry me
And not deny me
If I said I'd marry you
It was only for to try you
So bring your witness love
And I'll not deny you

No, witness have I none
Save God almighty
And may he reward you well
For the slighting of me
Her lips grew pale and wan
It made a poor heart tremble
To think she loved a one
And he proved deceitful

A blacksmith courted me
Nine months and better
He fairly won my heart
Wrote me a letter
With his hammer in his hand
He looked so clever
And if I was with my love
I would live forever
