The Maid Gaed Tae The Mill


The maid gaed tae the mill ae nicht 
Sae wanton, sae wanton
The maid gaed tae the mill ae night
Hi sae wanton she
The maid gaed tae the mill ae night 
She swore by moon and stars sae bricht
That she would get her corn grun'
Mill and multure free

Then oot an' cam' the miller's man
Sae wanton, sae wanton
Then oot an' cam' the miller's man 
Hi sae wanton she
Then oot an' cam' the miller's man
Says he I'll dae the best I can
Fir tae get her corn grun'
Mill and multure free

He's laid her doon upon a sack
Sae wanton, sae wanton
He's laid her doon upon a sack
Hi sae wanton she
He's laid her doon upon a sack
Her maidenhead's gaed wi' a crack
Richt well she got her corn grun'
Mill and multure free

It's easy up and easy doon
Sae wanton, sae wanton
It's easy up and easy doon
Hi sae wanton she
It's easy up and easy doon
She scarce could tell her corn was grun'
Richt well she got her corn grun'
Mill and multure free

When twenty weeks were passed and gone
Sae wanton, sae wanton
When twenty weeks were passed and gone
Hi sae wanton she
When twenty weeks were passed and gone
This fair young maid grew pale and wan
Fir gettin' a' her corn grun'
Mill and multure free

When forty weeks were passed and gone
Sae wanton, sae wanton
When forty weeks were passed and gone
Hi sae wanton she
When forty weeks were passed and gone
This fair young maid brought forth a son
Because she'd gat her corn grun'
Mill and multure free

This young man maun hae a nurse
Sae wanton, sae wanton
This young man maun hae a nurse
Hi sae wanton she
This young man maun hae a nurse
This young man he'll draw oot his purse
Because he has her corn grun'
Mill and multure free
