The women always seem to get a bad shake in murder ballads, so I figured I'd turn the tables some. Tune is "Pretty Fair Maid Down In TheGarden," and yes I know it's not a murder ballad, but I like the tune...


Pretty fair maid, down in the garden
Will you come walking by my side
Can you stand to see us partin'?
Or will you say you'll be my bride?

Oh no she said, we can't be married
I have another in my heart
And since I'm feeling slightly harried
I think it's time that we should part

Now he took out his silver dagger
Now look what you have made me do
But all the time he was trying to shag her
He didn't know she knew kung fu

She roundhouse kicked that silver dagger
She punched his nose right off his face
And for the times he tried to shag her
She kicked him in his shagging place

Pretty fair maid down in the garden
Tripping softly through the grass
And if she thinks it's time for partin'
You better leave, or she'll kick your ass
