Death and the Lady = 100 4 3 As I walked out one morning in May The birds did sing and the lambs did play The birds did sing and the lambs did play I met an old man, I met an old man I met an old man by the way His head was bald, his beard was grey His coat was of a myrtle shade I asked him what strange countryman Or what strange place, or what strange place Or what strange place he did belong "My name is Death, cannot you see? Lords, dukes, and ladies bow down to me And you are one of those branches three And you fair maid, and you fair maid, And you fair maid must come with me" "I'll give you gold and jewels rare I'll give you costly robes to wear I'll give you all my wealth in store If you'll let me live, if you'll let me live If you'll let me live a few years more" "Fair lady, lay your robes aside No longer glory in your pride And now, sweet maid, make no delay Your time is come, your time is come Your time is come and you must away" And not long after this fair maid died "Write on my tomb," the lady cried, "Here lies a poor distressed maid Whom Death now lately, whom Death now lately Whom Death now lately hath betrayed" www.abcnotation.com/tunes
