Song: 4/4 time - slow.

This is the sad Irish folk song
sung by Emily in "I Dies from Love."
Parts of the song were spread through-
out the episode, all sung solo by actress
Evin Crowley herself.

6   6   -6  6   -5   5 -4   4
In More Street where I did dwell

5  5   5  -5 -4   5   -5   6
A butcher boy I loved too well.

6  -6 -7 7 6  -7  -6  -4  5
He courted me, my life away,

-5  -6   6  -4  5  -5    5   4
And now with me he will not stay.


6  6   -6  6   -5  5   -4  4
I wish, I wish, I wish in vain

5   5  5 -5 -4  5  -5  6
I wish I was a maid again!

6  -6 -7   7  6  -7  '6 -4  5
But a maid again I'll never be.

-5   -6   6   -4   5  -5   5    4
Till cherries grow on an apple tree.


6  6  -6  6 -5  5 -4   4
I wish my baby it was born

5    5  5  -5  -4  5  -5    6
And smiling on its daddy's knee

6  -6   -7    7    6  -7   -6  -4   5
And me, poor girl, to be dead and gone

-5   -6   6   -4     5     -5      5   4
With the long green grass growin' over me.
 

6   6     -6     6   -5   5   -4  4
He went upstairs and the door he broke.

5   5    5   -5  -4   5  -5  6
He found her hanging from a rope.

6  -6   -7   7    6   -7 -6  -4   5
He took his knife and he cut her down,

-5  -6  6   -4       5    -5   5    4
And in her pocket, these words he found:


6    6   -6   6    -5     5   -4    4
"Oh make my grave large, wide and deep,

5   5   5     -5    -4   5  -5    6
Put a marble stone at my head and feet.

6   -6  -7  7  6 -7 -6  -4   5
And in the middle a turtle dove

-5   -6    6  -4    5  -5   5   4
So the world may know I died for love."

End with this line: 6 6 -6 6   -5 5 -4 4
