There are two young lovers, they're pledged to each other's hands,
They meet by the river, to talk of their marriage plans.
"I'm confessing," he said, "I've signed for a soldier,
I'm leaving tomorrow for some foreign land."
She watches the pretty young soldiers,
As they march themselves off to the war.
She wonders if she'll ever see him again,
Somehow she doubts it, but she has to be sure.
So she rode into town on the very next day,
And dressed herself up all in man's array.
With a sword and a musket she took the King's shilling,
And to fight in some foreign war,
She said, "Yes!," she'd be willing.
