Whittingham Fair

WHITTINGHAM FAIR

Are you going to Whittingham Fair,
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
Remember me to one that lives there,
For once she was a true love of mine.

Tell her to make me a cambric shirt,
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
Without any seam or needlework,
And she shall be a true lover of mine.

Tell her to wash it it yonder well,
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Where never spring water nor rain ever fell
And she shall be a true lover of mine

Tell her to dry it on yonder thorn,
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Which never bore blossom since Adam was born,
And she shall be a true lover of mine.

Tell him to find me an acre of land,
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Between the salt water and the sea strand,
Then he shall be a true lover of mine.

Tell him to plough it with a ram's horn,
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
And sow it all over with one pepper corn,
Then he shall be a true lover of mine

When he has done and finished his work,
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Oh tell him to come and he'll have his shirt,
And he shall be a true love of mine.
