Subject: Lyr Add: THE COBBLER'S DAUGHTER (from Kate Rusby)
From: Amergin
Date: 28 Apr 01 - 12:55 AM

Well, Guest, celtic....I have several songs lyrics here...One of them is The Cobbler's Daughter....

The Cobbler's Daughter
trad/Rusby

I am a cobbler's daughter
I'm thought of rude and mean
But a finer lass, a bonnier lass
You have never seen
I've plagued my father's head
For my life I wouldn't wed
And my mother's in the prison because of me

There was a handsome young man
Who used to live near me
If I went out, if I went in
He'd always follow me
I'll never rue the day
It happened as I say
I led him into my chamber room to see

I led him to my chamber
So we could be alone
And knowing that my mother
And my father were at home
He kissed me on the cheek
And I screamed til I was weak
My father came a running to be shown

He jumped upon the young man
As I was standing by
But he brought his fist behind his head
And thumped him in the eye
Then my mother heard the din
Up the stairs she did begin
With a broom for a weapon she held high

Out ran the young man
To the stairs straightaway
But my mother she was waiting
Like a raging bull I'd say
She hit him on the head
The young man fell like lead
Quite dead upon the floor he lay

Personally....that is what I would call a cock tease.....

Subject: Lyr Add: DROWNED LOVERS (from Kate Rusby)
From: GUEST,Drowned Lovers
Date: 28 Apr 01 - 01:22 AM

DROWNED LOVERS

Willie sits in his stable door, and he's combing his coal-black steed.
He's doubting on fair Margaret's love, and his heart begins to bleed.
"Give corn unto my horse, mother, and meat to my man, John,
And I'll away to fair Margaret's bower before the night comes on."

"Stay at home with me, dear Willie. Oh, stay at home with me,
And the very best cock in all the roost your own supper will be."
"For all your cocks and all your roosts, I value not a pin,
And I'll away to fair Margaret's bower before the night comes in."

"Well, if you go to fair Margaret's bower without the leave of me,
In the deepest part of the Clyde water, then drownèd you will be."
"Oh, the good steed that I ride upon cost me thrice thirty pounds,
And I'll put trust in his swift feet to take me safe and sound."

He's ridden o'er yon high, high hill, and down yon dowey den,
And the rushin' in of the Clyde water would fear five hundred men.
"Oh, roaring Clyde, you roar so loud. Your steams are wondrous strong.
Make me a wreck as I come back, but spare me as I'm gone."

When he's got to fair Margaret's bower, he's turled low on the pin.
"Rise up, rise up, me May Margaret. Rise up and let me in."
"Oh, who is this at me bower door, callin' May Margaret's name?"
"Oh, it's only your first love, little William, this night come to her home.

"Open your gates this night. Oh, open and let me in,
For my boots are full of the Clyde and I'm frozen to the skin."
"My barns are full of corn, Willie, and my stable's full of hay.
My bower's full of gentlemen and they won't remove till day."

"Fare thee well to you, May Margaret. Fare thee well and adieu,
For I have earned my mother's own curse by coming this night to you."
He's ridden o'er yon high, high hill, and down yon dowey den,
And the rushing in of the Clyde water took Willie's hat from him.

He's leaned him over his saddlebow to catch his hat again,
And the rushing in of the Clyde water took Willie's cane from him.
He's leaned him over his saddlebow to catch his cane by force,
And the rushing in of the Clyde water took Willie from his horse.

The very hour this young man sank into the part so deep,
Up and awoke Miss May Margaret out from her dreary sleep.
"Come here, come here, me mother dear, and read to me my dream.
I dreamt my love was at our gate and no one let him in."

"Lie there, lie there, me May Margaret, lie there and take your rest,
For since your love was at our gate it's but two quarters past."
Nimbly, nimbly rose she up unto the water's brim,
And the louder that this young girl cried, the louder grew the wind.

The very first step that she went in, she's up into her feet,
And it's "Oh and alas!" this young girl cried, "Your water's wondrous deep."
Oh, the very next step that she went in, she's up unto her knees.
Cried she, "I would go farther in, if I my true lover could see."

The very next step that she went in, she's up unto her chin.
In the deepest part of the Clyde water, she's found sweet William in,
Saying, "You have had a cruel mother, Willie, and I have had another,
And now we'll sleep in the Clyde water like sister and like brother."

See also  The Drowned Lovers  posted here a year or so back, and easily found by typing drowned lovers into the very useful "Digitrad and Forum Search" box on the main Forum page.  Kate learned the song from a Nic Jones record.  The (unofficial) site that Suzanne referred to seems to have transcriptions of most of the songs, but unfortunately includes no copyright or source information.

HI there everyone, I am trying to find some background on the song Cobblers Daughter as sung by Kate Rusby, but to no avail. Can anyone help. I note that it is listed as Trad/Rusby on her album sleeve but I can't trace it anywhere under that title.
Cheers
Chris
