about

EDWARD
From Eighty English Folk Songs, collected and published by Cecil J. Sharp and Maud Karpeles. Between 1916 And 1918, Cecil and Maud visited the Southern Appalachian mountains, noting songs that had travelled with immigrants from Britain and taken root in their new home - eventually blossoming into a whole new musical tradition.
Track Illustration: Oil painting of Daniel Boone escorting settlers through the Cumberland Gap by George Caleb Bingham

lyrics

How came this blood on your shirt sleeve
O dear love tell me
It is the blood of the old grey mare
That ploughed the field for me, me, me
That ploughed the field for me

It does look too pale for the grey mare’s blood
That ploughed the field for thee, thee, thee
That ploughed the field for thee

How came this blood on your shirt sleeve
O dear love tell me
It is the blood of the old grey hound
That traced the fox for me, me, me
That traced the fox for me

It does look too pale for the greyhound’s blood
That traced the fox for thee, thee, thee
That traced the fox for thee

How came this blood on your shirt sleeve
O dear love tell me
It is the blood of my brother-in-law
Who would not ride with me, me, me
Who would not ride with me

And it’s what did you fall out about
O dear love tell me
About a little bit of bush
That soon would have made a tree, tree, tree
That soon would have made a tree

And it’s what will you do now my love
O dear love, tell me
I’ll set my foot into yonder ship
And I’ll sail all across the sea, sea, sea
I’ll sail all across the sea

And it’s when will you come back again
O dear love, tell me
When the sun sets into yonder sycamore tree
And I know that will never, never be - Never be
I know that will never, never be
