Oh! Open the Door, Lord Gregory
Language: English after the English
Oh! Open the door, Lord Gregory,
Oh open and let me in;
The rain rains on my scarlet robes,
The dew drops o'er my chin.
If you are the lass that I lov'd once,
As I true you are but she,
Come give me some of the tokens
That past between you and me.
