What did I have, said the fine old woman
1 5 1 6m
What did I have, this proud old woman did say
I had four green fields, each one was a jewel
But stangers came and tried to take them from me
I had fine strong sons, they fought to save my jewels
1 (6m) 1
They fought and they died, and that was my grief said she.
ago, said the fine old woman
Long time ago, this proud old woman did say
There was war and death, plundering and pillage
My children died, by mountain, valley and sea
And their wailing cries, they shook the very heavens
My four green fields, ran red with their blood, said she.
I now, said the fine old woman
What have I now, this proud old woman did say
I have four green fields, one of them's in bondage
In strangers hands, that tried to take it from me
But my sons have sons, as brave as were there fathers
My fourth green field, will bloom once again said she.
