Text:
The Three Ravens - Trad. English ballad
There were three rauens sat on a tree, downe a downe, hay downe, hay downe,
There were three rauens sat on a tree, with a downe, There were three rauens sat on a tree,
They were as blacke as they might be. With a downe, derrie, derrie, derrie, downe, downe.
The one of them said to his mate, Where shall we our breakfast take?
Downe in yonder greene field, There lies a Knight slain under his shield,
His hounds they lie downe at his feete, So well they can their Master keepe,
His Hawkes they flie so eagerly, There's no fowle dare him come nie
Downe there comes a fallow Doe, As great with yong as she might goe,
She lift up his bloudy head, And kist his wounds that were so red,
She got him up upon her backe, And carried him to earthen lake,
She buried him before the prime, She was dead her self ere euen-song time.
God send euery gentleman, Such haukes, such hounds, and such a Leman.
