I'm a Man who've done Wrong

I'm a Man who've done Wrong
I’m a man who’ve done wrong to my parents,
And daily I wander about;
I have a small mite for my shelter tonight,
But God help me now I’m cast out.
As sung by Danny Brazil and Lemmy Brazil, Gloucester 5 January 1967 (Springthyme 67.1.26, 31). In: Shepheard, Peter. Folk Songs and Ballads of the Brazil Family of Gloucester (1967).

I’m a man who’ve done wrong to my parents,
And daily I wander about;
I have a small mite for my shelter tonight,
But God help me now I’m cast out.

My sister she married a squire,
She rides in her carriage and three;
Because that she is so much higher,
She won’t look, she won’t speak to me.

My mother she died broken hearted,
She died broken hearted for me;
She would lend me a crown with her head hanging down,
And the tears rolling out of her eyes.

I’m a man who’ve done wrong to my parents,
And daily I’ve wandered about;
For the rest of my days I have got it to stay,
To never enter the dwelling no more.
