Roud 7, "The Female Highwayman" or "Sovay." This somewhat ridiculous ballad comes from the English countryside somewhere between the 16th and 18th centuries, and crops up in the countrysides of all English-speaking nations where highway robbery was a significant problem. It's a love song! About threatening to murder someone.
