Katy Dear

Lyrics: Traditional
Music: Traditional

Played by Jerry with Old And In The Way.

Oh Katy dear, go ask your mother
If you can be a bride of mine
If she says yes, come back and tell me
If she says no, we'll run away

Oh Willie dear, there's no use in asking
She's in her room, up taking rest
And by her side lies a silver dagger
To slay the one that I love best

Oh Katy dear, go and ask your father
If you can be a bride of mine
If he says yes, come on back and tell me
If he says no, we'll run away

Oh Willie dear, there's no use in asking
For he's there too, up taking rest
And by his side lies that silver dagger
To slay the one that I love best

Then he picked up that silver dagger
And plunged it through his troubled heart
Saying goodbye Katy, goodbye darling
The time has come for us to part

Then she picked up that bloody dagger
And stove it through her lily white breast
Saying goodbye momma, goodbye papa
I'll die with the one that I love best
