Lyrics to Bruton Town
Bruton Town Video:
In Bruton town there lived a noble man He had two sons and a daughter fair By night and day they were contriving For to fill their sister's heart with care One night one night our restless young girl One brother rose up from his bed He heard the servant court their sister Oh he heard they had a mind to wed Oh when he rose the very next morning Went searching for the servant-man And when he found him this young man he murdered Oh left him lying in the briars around Oh she went to bed a-crying and lamenting And thinking of her own true love And as she slept she dreamt that she saw him A-lying in the countryside all covered with gore and blood Oh brothers, brothers why do you whisper And what's become of this servant man? Oh we lost him when we were a-contending We lost him where he won't ever be found Oh she early rose the very next morning And searched the countryside around And there she saw her own dear jewel A-lying in the briars where he'd been found Three days and nights shed lay by him She thought her heart it would break with woe When a cruel hunger came upon her And in despair to her home she did go Oh sister, sister why do you whisper And won't you tell us where you've been Stand off, stand off you bloody butchers My love and I you have all slain
