    once upon a time there lived a lady young and fair
    raven hair and rosy cheeks and no one to compare
    daughter of a noble man in a little town
    and her name was nora lee, and it was spoken all around

    it's told that she was courted by two men of different kin
    one of them a shoemaker that made boots of lizard skin
    the other was the sheriff in this little town
    and he swore he'd marry her or else he'd put her in the ground

    one night the moon was brightly shining in the sky
    she went to see the shoemaker and with him she did lie
    'you are my own true love' she whispered soft and low
    but they'd been spied upon that night, and soon the sheriff he would know

    then came a cold and dark night and the wind was blowin' free
    the sheriff and his men they tied poor nora to a tree
    full of wickedness they stole her maidenhead
    then they stabbed her with a knife 'till they were sure she was dead

    her body it was found the next day on the banks below
    the news was heard and many hearts were filled with grief and woe
    'the guilty one will soon be hung' the sheriff he did claim
    and he called upon his men, the shoemaker to blame

    the scaffold it was built and all the people gathered round
    just to watch that poor boy taken to his hangin' ground
    the rope was tied around his neck for everyone to see
    and as the hangman pulled the rope, then he would meet his nora lee
