My Baby

My Baby
Mary Morgan

The moon rose high
The night grew cold
The church bells they did sound
Her sin and shame
Though they remained
Her hope grew stronger still

Through the bars of steel
Stars be not concealed
One to bear the name
Of her new born child, that couldn't see
See the light of day

She cried hmmm, she cried
She cried
But her tears don't wash her sins away

They walked her to
The gallows lane
People stood and cursed her name
Many a poor soul has suffered for less
Repentant to the judge she confessed

For her new born girl
She did put to death
They’ll hang her there tomorrow noon
And there they'll write her name in stone
For her sins she will atone

She cried hmmm, she cried
She cried
But her tears don't wash her sins away

She did cast
Her final gaze
Into the starlit sky
That she proclaimed
I hope I shall meet her bye and bye
