MATT HYLAND Traditional (Ireland) There was a lord who lived in this town Who had a lovely and handsome daughter She was courted by a fine young man Who was a servan to her father And when her parents came to know They swore they'd ban him from the island The maid she swore that heart would break Had she to part with young Matt Hyland So straight away to her love she goes Into his room to awake him Saying arise my love and go away This very night you will be taken I overheard my parents say Inspite of me they will transport you So arise my love and go away I wish to God I'd gone before you They both sat down up on the bed Just for the side of one half hour And not a word by either said As down their cheeks the tears did shower She laid her hand up an his breast Around his neck her arms entwined Not a duke nor lord nor an earl I'll wed I'll wait for you my own Matt Hyland The lord discoursed with her daughter fair One night alone in her chamber Saying we'll give you leave for to bring him back Since there's no one can win your favour She wrote a letter then in haste Her heart for him was still repining They brought him back to the church they went And made a lord of young Matt Hyland
