about

Shirley & Dolly Collins’ recorded this song
for their 1970 album ‘Death And The Lady’.
It is unclear where Shirley found it.
However, it shares two verses with the more
widely known song ‘Died for Love’ which was
collected by Percy Grainger in 1908
from the singing of Joseph Taylor in Lincolnshire.

lyrics

Are you going to leave me, love?
Are you going to leave me?
Would you give up your own love true
To go with a girl you never knew?
My true love stands in the bower door,
Combing down his yellow hair.
His bonny face I like to see,
I wonder if my love thinks of me?
When I wore my apron low
Couldn't keep you from my door.
But now my apron's to my shin
You pass me by and won't come in.
I wish my baby it was born,
Smiling on his daddy's knee,
And I a poor girl dead and gone
And the green grass growing over me.
Now there's a bird in yon church yard,
They say he's blind and cannot see.
I wish it had been the same with me
Before I kept your company.
I wish, I wish but it's all in vain,
I wish I was a maid again.
But a maid again I'll never be
Since that young man lay still with me.
Are you going to leave me, love?
Are you going to leave me?
Would you give up your own love true
To go with a girl you never knew?
