​So Early in the Spring

This song is by The Pentangle and appears on the Double album Sweet Child (1968).

So early, early in the spring
I shipped on board to serve my king
I left my dearest dear behind
She oftimes swore her heart was mine

And all the time I sailed the seas
I could not find a moment's ease
For thinking of my dearest dear
But never a word of her could I hear

At last I sailed into Glasgow town
I searched the streets both up and down
Inquiring for my dearest dear
But never a word of her could I hear

I went straightway to her father's hall
And gladly for my love did call
My daughter is married she's a rich man's wife
She's wed to another much better for life

Oh curse your gold and your silver too
And curse the girl that won't prove true
Who all her former vows did break
And went with another for riches' sake

If the girl is married that I adore
I'm sure I'll stay on land no more
I'll sail the seas till the day I die
I'll break through waves rolling mountain high
