lyrics

'Twas through Moorfields I rambled by myself and all alone
I heard a maid in Bedlam a-making her sad moan
She was wringing of her tender hands, and a-tearing of her hair
Saying, " Oh, cruel parents, you have proved to me severe.
She was wringing of her tender hands, and a-tearing of her hair
Saying, " Oh, cruel parents, you have proved to me severe.

It's all for my true love, your apprentice boy you know
You sent him to the sea which has proved my overthrow
This sad disconsolation has made me to complain
Saying, ' Oh, will I ever see the man I love again? ' "

Twas early next morning this young sailor came on shore,
He walk’ed and he talk’ed down alongside Bedlam door
He gave unto the porter a handsome sum of gold
Saying, " Take me to my dear love, she's the joy of my soul."
Saying, " Take me to my dear love, she's the joy of my soul."

I am the young man that your father sent to sea
But I have returned all for the love of thee
If this is true, she said, then all my sorrows they are fled
I’ll bid farewell these chains, and this cold strawy bed

I am the young man that your father sent to sea
But I have returned all for the love of thee
If this is true, she said, then all my sorrows they are fled
I’ll bid farewell these chains, and this cold strawy bed

So it’s through Moorfields I ramble by myself and all alone
Yes it’s through Moorfields I ramble, by myself and all alone
