Bonny May, a shepherding has gone To call the sheep to the fold And as she sang, her bonny voice it rang Right over the tops of the downs, downs, Right over the tops of the downs. There came a troop of gentlemen As they were riding by And one of them has lighted down And he's asked of her the way, way, And he's asked of her the way. "Ride on, ride on, you rank riders, Your steeds are stout and strong, For it's out of the fold I will not go For fear you do me wrong, wrong, For fear you do me wrong." Now he's taken her by the middle jimp And by the green gown sleeve, And there he's had his will of her And he's asked of her no leave, leave, And he's asked of her no leave. Now he's mounted on his berry brown steed, He soon o'erta'en his men And one and all cried out to him, "Oh, master, you tarried long, long, Oh, master, you tarried long." "Oh, I've ridden East and I've ridden West, And I've ridden o'er the downs, But the bonniest lass that ever I saw She was calling her sheep to the fold, fold." She's taken the milk pail on her head And she's gone lingering home. And all her father said to her Was; "Daughter, you tarried long, long, Oh, daughter, you tarried long." "Oh, woe be to your shepherd, father, He takes no care of the sheep, For he's builded the fold at the back of the down And the fox has frightened me, me, And the fox has frightened me."
