Bright Shiny Morning

One bright shiny morning as I was out walking
One bright shiny morning so early one day
Well who should I meet but my own darling daughter
She was wrapped up in flannel most colder than clay

Come dearest mother come sit down beside me
Oh come dearest mother come and pity my crime
For my sad heart is aching my poor heart is breaking
I'm deep in salvation and surely must die

Send for the young man that first introduced me
Send for that young man who hurried my fate
For my poor head is aching and my bones they are breaking
I'm deep in salvation and surely must die

Oh send for the doctor to come straightaway to me
Oh send for the doctor although it's too late
For if he would have told me after ...
For I am a young guy cut down in my prime

Six jolly sailors come carry my coffin
Six jolly young sailors come and walk by my side
And a bunch of primroses to put on my coffin
For the people will smell me when passing them by

For my name is Loretta but don't call my name
