The Keeper and the Doe - Lyrics

The keeper did a hunting go
Under his cloak he carried a bow
All for a shoot, a merry little doe
Among the leaves so green, oh

Jacky boy
(Master)
Sing me well
(Very well)

Hey, down, ho, down, very, very down
Among the leaves so green, oh

To my head on down, to my whole on down
Hey, down, ho, down, very, very down
Among the leaves so green, oh

The first, oh, she did cross the plain
The keeper fetched her back again
Where she's now she may remain
Among the leaves so green, oh

Jacky boy
(Master)
Sing me well
(Very well)

Hey, down, ho, down, very, very down
Among the leaves so green, oh
To my hey down, down
Hey, down, ho, down, very, very down
Among the leaves so green, oh

The next doe, she did cross the brook
The keeper fetched her back with his hook
Where she's now you may go and look
Among the leaves so green, oh

Jacky boy
(Master)
Sing me well
(Very well)

Hey, down, ho, down, very, very down
Among the leaves so green, oh
To my hey down, down
Hey, down, ho, down, very, very down
Among the leaves so green, oh

The next doe she run over the plain,
But he with his bow did turned her again
It's there he did hunt in a merry, merry thing
Among the leaves so green, oh

Jacky boy
(Master)
Sing me well
(Very well)

Hey, down, ho, down, very, very down
Among the leaves so green, oh
To my hey down, down
Hey, down, ho, down, very, very down
Among the leaves so green, oh
