Excerpt from book:
"Lord, a lady is dead," an old lady said, "And her name was Lady Nancy." He ordered her grave to be opened wide, Her shroud to be torn down, And there he kissed her cold pale lips, Till the tears came trinkling down. Lady Nancy was buried in the cold church ground. Lord Lover was buried close by her; And out of her bosom there grew a rose, And out of Lord Lover's a briar. They grew and they grew to the church steeple high, Till they could grow no higher. And there they tied in a true lover's knot For all true lovers to admire.

So he arose and he left the room Where she'd been lately dwelling, Saying, "You've been called upon this eve, If your name be Barbery Allen." Then she arose and went to the room Where Jimmy was a-lying, And these were the words she seemed to say: " Young man, I think you're dying." "That's so, that's so, my love," said he, "I'm in a low condition; One kiss from you would comfort me If your name be Barbery Allen." " One kiss from me you'll never receive Although you are a-dying"; And every tongue did seem to say "Hard-hearted Barbery Allen." "O don't you remember a long time ago, Way down in yonder tavern, Where you drank your health to the ladies all, But you slighted Barbery Allen?" "Yes, I remember a long time ago, Way down in yonder tavern, Where I drank my health to the ladies all; But my love was to Barbery Allen." She had not gone more than half a mile ...
