The Lawyer


Sora
Arranged by R. Vaughn Williams

Story

What is WITH all these folk songs calling the women `handsome`. Seriously…that is NO way to get a woman.

Lyrics

A lawyer he went out one day
A riding through the city
It was there he met with a handsome maid
And he thought her so sweet and pretty
`Good morning to you pretty maid and whither are you going?`
`I am going down yonder meadow` she said, `where my father he is mowing`
`I`ll take you up to London town and all such lovely places;
I will busk you into a silken gown, gold rings and gold chains and laces`
`I`ll have none of your London town and all such lovely places;
I will not be busked into a silken gown, gold rings and gold chains and laces`
And now she is a poor man`s wife, her husband dearly loves her
She lives a sweet and contented life
There`s no lady in town above her.
