“Gone to America”
Artist: Steeleye Span
Albums: The Best of Steeleye Span (2002)

Married him in April, lost him in July
Listen to my story and I'll tell you why
They said that he'd been poaching and stealing wine
They said I wouldn't see him for a long long time
Chorus: They said he's gone to America
To work the land that some called Virginia
They said he's gone to America
Married him in April, lost him in July
They took him as their prisoner then told me why
They said they had sent him where poachers go
I asked if I could see him but they said no
Chorus:
Married him in April, lost him in July
Curse the men who took him, curse their wicked lie
The night they saw him poaching and stealing wine
Was the night he took comfort in these arms of mine
Chorus:
Married him in April, lost him in July
