From Joan Baez’s “Michael”

In the time spent in the foggy dew
With the raven and the dove
Barefoot she walked the winter streets
In search of her own true love
You’ve heard of the House of the Rising Sun
And what careless love can do
You’ve heard of the wildwood flower
That fades in the morning dew

And of the ship that circles three times round
And sinks beneath the sea
You’ve heard of Barbary Allen
And now you’ve heard of me

So fill thee up my loving cup
Fast and to the brim
How many fair and tender maids
Will ever love again?

–the ultimate archetypal folk song from one of Joan’s best albums–Honest Lullaby, released in 1979 on Sony–she’s in great voice!
