lyrics

Sovay, Sovay all on a day
She dressed herself in man's array
With a brace of pistols all by her side
To meet her true love to meet her true love she did ride.

And as she was a-riding over the plain
She met her true love, ring on his hand and she said STOP
Your gold and silver kind sir she said
And if you do not, and if you do not, your life I'll have.

He offered all his gold and stones
And yet she craved for one thing more
That diamond ring, that diamond ring you wear
Oh hand it over, oh hand it over and your life I'll spare.

Oh that golden ring a token is
My life I'll lose the ring I'll save.
Being tender-hearted just like a dove
She rode away she rode away from her true love.

Oh next morning in the garden green
Just like true lovers they were seen
Oh he spied his watch hanging by her clothes
And it made him blush made him blush like any rose.

Oh what makes you blush at so silly a thing
I thought to have had your golden ring
It was I that robbed you all on the plain
So here's your watch here's your watch and your gold again.

I did intend and it was to know
If that you were me true love or no
For if you'd have give me that ring she said
I'd have pulled the trigger I'd have pulled the trigger and shot you dead.
