Recording Information
Ballad Title The / Credulous Virgins com- / plaint. Or, Lovers made Happy at last. / Being a Caution to the Female Sex. / Being a most pleasant new Song in two parts, With the Youngmans kind Answer. / Caelia complains Virgins are oft too kind, / The which she did by late experience find, / For yielding unto Damon she does prove / That hasty pleasures are the bain of Love; / But in the Tempest of her wounding grief, / Damon comes in and yields her kind relief: / But vows renew, and at last both are wed, / Though he before had got her Maiden-head.
Tune Imprint To the Tune of Sawny will never be my Love again.
Standard Tune Title Sawney Will Never Be My Love Again
