X:1 T:There Was A Simple Maiden C:Trad Z:Webmaster K: W:1 W:There was a simple maiden, Long ago, yes, long ago, W:Whose heart with grief was laden. Pray how came it so? W:She thought upon the knight who dwelt Within the castle yonder, W:Keen was the pain she felt As on him she would ponder, W:Keen was the pain she felt As on him she would ponder. W: W:2 W:Then did she die of grieving? No, no., no, it was not so. W:Now yonder she is living Old enough I trow.

W:3 W:In manner she was homely You must know, yes, you must know W:But oh! her face was comely, Very long ago W:And though she was of lowly birth And owned no golden treasure, W:He thought her simple worth A dowry past all measure W:He thought her simple worth A dowry past all measure. % % % % %
