When Bold King Edward When bold King Edward ruled the land He ruled it like a king. And he turned his three sons out of doors Because they could not sing. Because they could not sing. Because they could not sing. And he turned his three sons out of doors Because they could not sing. The first he was a miller The second he was a weaver The third he was a little tailor boy Three thievish rogues together. Three thievish etc. The miller he staw meal And the weaver he staw yarn And the little tailor he stole broadcloth To keep those three rogues warm. The miller was drowned in his dam The weaver was hung wi' his yarn And the deil ran awa' wi' the little tailor boy Wi' his broadcloth under his arm. From the Grieg-Duncan Collection. Collected from Mrs. Grieg RG Apr98
