Come all ye fair and tender ladies. Be careful how you court your men.
They're like a star on a summer morning. They'll first appear and then their gone.

How I remember our days of courtin'. I met my love in the fading light,
But now she flies to meet another. The day is lonely as the night.

If I had known before I courted that true love was so hard to win.
I'd a-locked my heart in a box of golden and never opened it again.

I'll find a place come tomorrow. I'll climb some mountain way up high.
There I'll sit down to weep in sorrow and try to mend my troubled mind.

Come all ye fair and tender ladies. Be careful how you court your men.
They're like a star on a summer morning. They'll first appear and then their gone.
