And then they borded that noble shippe,

On both the sides with all ther men; Ther was eighten Scootes a live,

Besides all other was hurte and slayne. Then up my Lord tooke Sir Andrewe Barton,

And of he cutt the dead man's head, · I would forsweare England for xxth years,

Toe have the quicke as thowe art deade.'



But of he cut the dead man's heade,

And bounde his bodye toe borden tre,
And tiede 5 hundreth angles about his midle,

That was toe cause hime buried toe bee.
Then they sailled toe Ingland agayne,

With mickle merienes, as I weane, They entred Englishe land agayn

On the night before Ste Maudlen even.


Toe might' my Lord came the kinge an quen,

And many nobles of hie degree, They came fore noe kind of thinge,

But Sir Andrewe Barton they would see. Quoth my Lord, “ Yowe may thanke Allmighty God,

And foure men in the shippe with mee, That ever we scaipt Sir Andrewe hands,

England had never such an enniemie;
