NOTE

a

'ENGLISH SONGS AND BALLADS' must not be regarded as 'a choice, but simply as bringing together of poetical pieces which are, presumably, well known to the average person,—that is to say, the compiler has endeavoured to illustrate the general taste rather than his own preference.

God Lyaeus, ever young,
God prosper long our noble King,
God save our gracious King, .
Go fetch to me a pint o' wine,
Go, lovely Rose,
Good-morrow to the day so fair,
Good people all, of every sort,
Go where glory waits thee,
Green fields of England, wheresoe'er,

Her eyes the glow-worm lend thee,

Home they brought her warrior dead,
Ho! why dost thou shiver and shake,

I come, I come ! ye have called me long,
I knew an old wife lean and poor,
I lov'd a lass, a fair one,
I'm lonesome since I cross'd the hill,
I'm sitting on the stile, Mary,
In going to my naked bed,
In good King Charles's golden days,
In her ear he whispered gaily,
In the merry month of May, .
In Wakefield there lives a jolly pinder,
I sprang to the stirrup, and Joris, and he,
Is there for honest poverty,
