Subject: Lyr Add: YOUNG BEEHAM (from Roby Monroe Hicks)
From: Roberto

Young Beeham (number 53 in Child)
Roby Monroe Hicks, on Her Bright Smile Haunts Me Still, The Warner Collection, Volume I

The transcription at the Warner Collection's site is not exactly what the singer sings and the last verses (when the singer doesn't remember his song well) are omitted. Please, help me correct and complete this text. Roberto

Young Beeham from the Glasgow gone
The Turkish nation for to seek
The Turks took him as a prisoner
They bound him to a trusty tree

They bored a hole through his right shoulder
And through and through they put a key
They throwed him into a dungeon deep
Where daylight he never could see

The jailor had a beautiful daughter
A beautiful daughter O was she
The prison door was throwed wide open
And in there stood she

Have you any house or land
Or have you any buildings free
That you would give to a pretty girl
That set you at your liberty?

I have house an' I have land
And other buildings two or three
The Glasgow town is all mine
Besides the other buildings two or three
That I would give to a pretty girl
That set me at my liberty

Give to me your ... and honour
Your right hand to marry me
And seven years ...
I'll give to you my ... and honour
My right hand to marry you
And seven years ... For seven years being rolling on
..... be very long

Father, father, build me a boat
And over the ocean I may float
