Long Preston Peg

Melody -

Song from the first rebellion, 1715

Long Preston Peg to proud Preston went,
To see the Scotch rebels it was her intent.
A noble Scotch lord, as he passed by,
On this Yorkshire damsel did soon cast an eye.

2. He called to his servant, which on him did wait,
Go down to yon girl who stands in the gate,
That sings with a voice so soft and so sweet,
And in my name do her lovingly greet.

Anybody have the lyrics to the rest of this song?
