Calling-On Song

  • (Ashley Hutchings)

    Good people pray heed a petition
    Your attention we beg and we crave
    And if you are inclined for to listen
    An abundance of pastime we'll have
    We have come to relate many stories
    Concerning our forefathers' times
    And we trust they will drive out your worries
    Of this we are all in one mind

    Many tales of the poor and the gentry
    Of labour and love will arise
    There are no finer songs in this country
    In Scotland and Ireland likewise
    There's one thing more needing mention
    The dances we'll dance all in fun
    So now that you've heard our intention
    We'll play on to the beat of the drum

    As sung by Steeleye Span
