Thanks for the link, Guest. I enjoyed seeing the old format. Some fun typos, too.

I like the second song on the same sheet, where the man declares his instant love, and the maiden replies, "Young man, you're dreaming, or else you're scheming."

Dear Abby (advice columnist here) recently had a column telling how to recognize an abuser. One sign is that the abuser meets the future victim and demands a serious relationship instantly. Fortunately for the maidens in folksongs, this always seems to turn out okay.
