The songs sung by many folk groups tell a story

   Death and the Lady - - As I walked out one morning in May - The birds did sing and the lambs did play - The birds did sing and the lambs did play - I met an old man, I met an old man - I met an old man by the way. - 2. His head was bald, his beard was grey - His coat was of a myrtle shade - I asked him what strange countryman - Or what strange place, or what strange place - Or what strange place he did belong. - - 3. "My name is Death, cannot you see? - Lords, dukes, and ladies bow down to me - And you are one of those branches three - And you fair maid, and you fair maid, - And you fair maid must come with me".
