Tom WaitsTwo Sisters

There was an old woman, lived by the seashore Bow and balance me There was an old woman, lived by the seashore A number of daughters: one, two, three, four And I'll be true to my love if my love will be true to me There was a young man come there to see them Bow and balance me There was a young man come there to see them and the oldest one got stuck on him And I'll be true to my love if my love will be true to me He bought the youngest a beaver hat Bow and balance me He bought the youngest a beaver hat and the oldest one got mad at that And I'll be true to my love if my love will be true to me Oh, sister oh, sister let's walk the seashore Bow and balance me Oh, sister oh, sister let's walk the seashore and see the ships as they're sailing on And I'll be true to my love if my love will be true to me While these two sisters were walking the shore Bow and balance me While these two sisters were walking the shore the oldest pushed the youngest o'er And I'll be true to my love if my love will be true to me Oh, sister oh, sister please lend me your hand Bow and balance me Oh, sister oh, sister please lend me your hand and you will have Willy and all of his land And then I'll be true to my love if my love will be true to me I'll never, I'll never will lend you my hand Bow and balance me I'll never, I'll never will lend you my hand but I'll have Willy and all of his land And I'll be true to my love if my love will be true to me Some time she swam and some time she swam Bow and balance me Some time she sank and some time she swam untill she came to the old mill dam And I'll be true to my love if my love will be true to me The miller, he got his fishinghook Bow and balance me The miller, he got his fishinghook and fished that maiden out of the brook And I'll be true to my love if my love will be true to me Oh, miller oh, miller here's five gold rings Bow and balance me Oh, miller oh, miller here's five gold rings to push the maiden in again And I'll be true to my love if my love will be true to me The miller received those five gold rings Bow and balance me The miller received those five gold rings and pushed that maiden in again And I'll be true to my love if my love will be true to me The miller was hung in the old mill gate Bow and balance me The miller was hung in the old mill gate for drowning little sister Kate And I'll be true to my love if my love will be true to me
