The Keeper Did A-Hunting Go

  • (Trad)

    Jackie Boy - Master
    Sing you well - Very well
    Heigh down-ho down, derry derry down
    Among the leaves so green-o
    To my hey down down- To my ho down down
    Heigh down-ho down, derry derry down
    Among the leaves so green-o

    The keeper did a-shooting go
    And under his cloak he carried a bow
    All for to shoot at the merry little doe
    Among the leaves so green-o

    The first doehe shot at he missed
    The second doe he trimly kissed
    The third doe went where nobody whisht
    Among the leaves so green-o

    The fourth doe she did cross the plain
    The keeper fetched her back again
    Where she is now she may remain
    Among the leaves so green-o

    The fifth doe she went over the brook
    The keeper fetched her back with his hook
    Where she is now you may go andf look
    Among the leaves so green-o

    (as sung by The Ian Campbell Folk Group)
