Recording Information
Ballad Title The Laundry-Maids Lamentation / for the loss of her Seaman. / The Seaman made a mighty shew of Love, / And vow'd & swore that he would constant prove. / He brought her presents from the Golden shore, / And thus unlockt her Heart and Chamber-door: / But when he'd gain'd his will he march'd away, / And left his Mistris with a Kid to play. / Now she laments, and tears her flaxen Hair; / He's shipwrackt, and she's ready to dispair.
