Recording Information
Ballad Title The True Lovers Tragedy: / Being an Incomparable Ballad of a Gentleman and his LADY / that both Killed themselves for Love, under the disguised Names of / Philander and Phillis. / Phillis; Philanders scattered Garments find / And thinks him slain, for which with Fate she joyns, / And with her fatal Poniard striketh deep, / As life no longer can its station keep, / The Crimson Streams so fast flowd from her veins / Yet Dying, of her Loves dear loss Complains: / No sooner Death had closed up her Starry eyes / But her Return'd Philander her espyes; / And finding that for him she lost her Breath, / He kills himself, and Crowns his Love with death.
