Pearl Bryan (3) In Greencastle lived a maiden She was known the wide world o'er She was murdered by Scots Jackson Whom she fondly did adore. Yes, she loved him very dearly For she was both bright and gay, And she trusted in him fully And by him was led astray. When she told him her sad story, And he knew that it was true, Then he grew so discouraged That he knew not what to do. Then he called on his friend Walling For to seek advice and aid And they held a consolation [consultation] And the daring plot was made In a cab one rainy evening, At the closing of the day There came Walling and Scott Jackson And with Pearl they drove away Yes. they drove far from the city, To a place so far from home, There they left her body lying Headless and all stained with blood DT #755 Laws F3 From Eddy, Ballads and Songs From Ohio collected from Rozetta Lozier of Perrysville SOF apr97
