ROSEMARY LANE (Traditional) Recorded by : The Green House Band; Rebecca Hall; Bert Jansch; Dan Milner; James Yorkston. When I was in service in Rosemary Lane I won the good will of my master Amberdine Till a sailor came there, one night to lay And that was the beginning of my misery He called for a candle to light him to bed And likewise a silk handkerchief to tie up his head To tie up his head, as sailors will do, And then said ď My pretty Polly, will you come too ? ď Now, this may be young and foolish, she thought it no harm To lie into bed, for to keep herself warm And what was done there, I will never disclose But I wish that short night had been 7 long years Next morning this sailor so early arose And into my apron 3 guineas did throw Saying ď This I will give, and more I will do, If youíll be my Polly wherever I go ď Now if itís a boy, he will fight for the king And if itís a girl, she will wear a gold ring She will wear a gold ring and a dress all aflame And remember my service in Rosemary Lane When I was in service in Rosemary Lane I won the good will of my master Amberdine Till a sailor came there, one night to lay And that was the beginning of my misery (Contributed by ceilnat - November 2004)
