Willie Moore (Graffin Greg)

Willie Moore was a young man, his age 21 And he courted a damsel fair Her eyes were as white as a diamond after night And a wavy jet black wore her hair He courted her night and day Until marriage they did agree But when he came to get her parents consent They said it could never be She threw herself in Willie Moore's arms As often she'd done before And little did he think when he left her that night Sweet Annie he would see no more It was about the 10th of May A time I remember it well That very same night little Annie disappeared In a way no tongue could tell Sweet Annie was loved both far and near She had friends almost all around And near a little brook not far from her home The body of sweet Annie were found Her parents now are left alone One mourns while the other'n weeps And near a grassy mound outside the cottage door The body of sweet Annie sleeps Willie Moore scarcely spoke to his friends they say From the moment they both did part And his last day was spent near his true lover's grave Where he died of a broken heart
