A man sees "Young Kate." He is "shivering and shaking" and tells Kitty her kiss will cure him. She is eventually won over by his glib tongue. She says a husband may beat her, destroy all his earnings, or leave her but she agrees to marry anyway.
Young Kitty Lee (Letty Lee) Partial text(s) *** A *** Young Kitty Lee From Kenneth Peacock, Songs of the Newfoundland Outports, Volume II, pp. 605-606. Sung by William Holloway, King's Cove, July 1952. As I walked out on a beautiful morning To view the fair fields as the day was a-dawning The lark and the linnet were charming in the morning, And nature seemed pleasant in every degree, Yes, nature was humming in every degree.
