How Should I Your True Love Know How should I your true love know From another one? By his cockle hat and staff And his sandal shoon. He is dead and gone, lady, He is dead and gone; At his head a grass-green turf At his heels a stone. White his shroud as the mountain snow, Larded with sweet flowers. Which bewept to the grave did not go With true-love showers. Note: The first of Shakespeare's Ophelia's "Mad Songs", Hamlet, Act IV Scene 5. Recorded by The Silly Sisters (Prior & Tabor) on No More To the Dance RG
