​Two Sisters

This song is by Niamh Parsons.

There were two sisters side by side
Sing aye dum, sing aye day
There were two sisters side by side
The boys are bound for me
There were two sisters side by side
The eldest for young johnny cried
I'll be true unto my love
If he'll be true to me

Johnny bought the youngest a beaver hat
Sing aye dum, sing aye day
Johnny bought the youngest a beaver hat
The boys are bound for me
Johnny bought the youngest a beaver hat
The eldest didn't think much of that
I'll be true unto my love
If he'll be true to me

Johnny bought the youngest a gay gold ring
Sing aye dum, sing aye day
Johnny bought the youngest a gay gold ring
The boys are bound for me
Johnny bought the youngest a gay gold ring
He never bought the eldest a single thing
I'll be true unto my love
If he'll be true to me

As they were walking by the stony brim
Sing aye dum, sing aye day
As they were walking by the stony brim
The boys are bound for me
As they were walking by the stony brim
The eldest pushed the youngest in
I'll be true unto my love
If he'll be true to me

Sister, oh sister give me your hand
Sing aye dum, sing aye day
Sister, oh sister give me your hand
The boys are bound for me
Sister, oh sister give me your hand
And you can have Johnny and all his land
I'll be true unto my love
If he'll be true to me

Oh, sister I won't give you my hand
Sing aye dum, sing aye day
Oh, sister I won't give you my hand
The boys are bound for me
Oh, sister I won't give you my hand
And I will have Johnny and all his land
I'll be true unto my love
If he'll be true to me

So away she sank and away she swam
Sing aye dum, sing aye day
So away she sank and away she swam
The boys are bound for me
So away she sank and away she swam
Until she came to the miller's dam
I'll be true unto my love
If he'll be true to me

The miller he took her gay gold ring
Sing aye dum, sing aye day
The miller he took her gay gold ring
The boys are bound for me
The miller he took her gay gold ring
And then he pushed her in again
I'll be true unto my love
If he'll be true to me

The miller he was hanged on a mountain head
Sing aye dum, sing aye day
The miller he was hanged on a mountain head
The boys are bound for me
The miller he was hanged on a mountain head
The eldest sister boiled in lead
I'll be true unto my love
If he'll be true to me
