I Wish My Baby Was Born

Very slightly filked lyrics below:
I wish, I wish my baby was born And sitting on its papa's knee And me, poor girl, were dead and gone And the cold marsh growing o'er my feet
I ain't ahead, nor never will be Till the sweet apple grows on a sour apple tree But still I hope the time will come When you and I shall be as one
I wish, I wish my love had died And sent his soul to wander free Then we might meet where ravens fly Let our poor bodies rest in peace
(optional) The owl, the owl is a lonely bird It chills my heart with grief and terror That someone's blood there on his wing That someone's blood there on his feathers.
