Lady Gay - Joan Baez (瓊·貝茲)

There was a lady and a lady gay

 

Of children she had three

 

She sent them away to the North Country

To learn their grammaree

 

They'd not been gone but a very short time

Scarcely three weeks and a day

When death cruel death came hasting along

And stole those babies away

 

There is a King in Heaven she cried

 

A King of third degree

Send back send back my three little pages

This night send them back to me

 

She made a bed in the uppermost room

On it she put a white sheet

And over the top a golden spread

That they much better might sleep

 

Take it off take it off cried the older one

Take it off take it off cried he

For what's to become of this wide wicked world

 

Since sin has first begun

 

She set a table of linen fine

 

On it she placed bread and wine

Come eat come drink my three little pages

Come eat come drink of mine

 

We want none of your bread mother

 

Neither do we want your wine

For yonder stands our Savior deer

To him we must resign

 

Green grass is over our heads mother

 

Cold clay is over our feet

 

And every tear you shed for us

 

It wets our winding sheet
