lyrics

-There were two little sisters a-walking alone
Hey hey the grinding
Two little sisters a-walking alone
By the bonny bonny bows of London

And the eldest pushed her sister in
Hey hey the grinding
Pushed her sister into the stream
By the bonny bonny bows of London

Oh she pushed her in and she watched her drown
Hey hey the grinding
Watched her body floating down
By the bonny bonny bows of London

Oh she floated up and she floated down
Hey hey the grinding
Floats till she come to the miller's dam
By the bonny bonny bows of London

And out and come the miller's son
Hey hey the grinding
Father dear here swims a swan
By the bonny bonny bows of London

Oh they laid her out on the bank to die
Hey hey the grinding
Fool with a fiddle come a-riding by
By the bonny bonny bows of London

And he took some strands of her long yellow hair
Hey hey the grinding
Made some strings from this yellow hair
By the bonny bonny bows of London



And he made fiddle pegs from her long fingerbone
Hey hey the grinding
Made fiddle pegs from her long fingerbone
By the bonny bonny bows of London

And he made a fiddle out of her breastbone
Hey hey the grinding
Sound would pierce the heart of a stone
By the bonny bonny bows of London

But the only tune that the fiddle would play
Was oh the bows of London
The only tune the fiddle would play
Was the bonny bonny bows of London

And he laid this fiddle all down on a stone
Hey hey the grinding
Played so loud it played all alone
By the bonny bonny bows of London
