The Stonecutter Boy

This song is by Anne Briggs and appears on the compilation The Bird in the Bush: Traditional Songs of Love and Lust (1996).

It's of a brisk stonecutter boy returning from his work
A pretty girl appeared on his side
He said, "My dearest dear
If you rest a moment here
I'll tell you what I dreamed about last night, last night
I'll tell you what I dreamed about last night"

It was under an oak that they sat themselves down
And this young girl she gave a little scream
And what they done I'll miss
I'll leave you all to guess
But it seems she got the content of his dream, of his dream
It seems she got the content of his dream

Well, this young girl, she then arose and she smoothed down her clothes
So nimbly she stood on the plain
She said, "My dearest sweet
Next time that we meet
I hope you tell me that dream over again, over again
I hope you tell me that dream over again"
