The Spotted Cow

Melody -

One morning in the month of June,
As from my cot I strayed,
|: Just at the dawning of the day
   I met with a charming maid. :|

Good morning to you, wither? said I,
Good morning to you now.
|: The maid replied: Kind Sir, she cried,
   I've lost my spotted cow. :|

No longer weep, no longer mourn.
Your cow's not lost my dear.
|: I saw her down in yonder grove.
   Come love and I'll show you where. :|

I must confess, you're very kind.
I thank you Sir, said she.
|: We will be sure her there to find.
   Come sweetheart and go with me. :|

And in the grove they spent the day.
They thought it passed too soon.
|: At night they homeward bent their way,
   While brightly shone the moon. :|

If he should cross the flowery dale
Or go to view the plough,
|: She comes and calls: You gentle swain,
   I've lost my spotted cow. :|
