Hugh Stenson And Molly Green Lyrics

Oh Bold Hugh Stenson is my name From Ashbourne in the Peak I came And at the age of seventeen I fell in love with Molly Green

Poor pity then this sorrowed state King George's army it is my fate All for the shilling that passed between Has parted me from Molly Green

She is a beauty I do declare She come from High Church in Shropshire She was an angel all in my eye Which made me from my colours to fly

But when I was all upon the seas I could not take one moments ease She was daily all in my eyes Home to her side then I did fly

Stenson, she said, I pray forbear I know that you a deserter are And if my parents should come to know How soon they'd prove your overthrow

So to Wollerton near Nottingham Where I put my trust in a false young man Thinking him a friend to be But he like Judas betrayed me

Then a court martial there was called And I was brought before them all And for deserting they did me try And they condemned me for to die

From January until July Upon these boards and stones I lie And when I die without control Let this sore scene sink in your soul

Come all young men where e'er you be I bid you warning take by me For at the age of seventeen I fell in love...
