I dreamed last night of my true love
And in my arms I held her
But when I woke, I found she had gone
I lay awake without her
I went unto her father's gate
Enquiring for my darling
He said, "Young man, now you've made a mistake
I've no such in my keeping"
Then her voice, it came from the roof above
Came straight away from her window
She said, "My love, oh I'd be but yours
But locks and bolts, they do hinder"
Then the blood was shed on every side
'Til I got her from among them
So come, all young men, would you do likewise?
Fight on until you win them
I held my sword in my right hand
And my true love in the other
So come, all young men that want suchwise
Fight on and take another
