Last Thing on my Mind
Hold onto Me
This is not a situation that comes up in the Child Ballads very often, in Fair Annie he is going to leave her after having seven sons by her, because he can get a dowry if he marries someone else. The plot twists from there, with him marrying her sister and then, depending on the version, either the original couple lives happily ever after or the sisters have him killed.
