The Keeper


The Keeper would a-hunting go
And under his coat he carried a bow
All for to shoot at a merry little doe
Among the leaves so green O.

Jackie boy! (Master!) 
Sing ye well? (Very well.)
Hey down! (Ho down!) Derry, derry down.
Among the leaves so green O.

The first 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.

Jackie boy! (Master!) 
Sing ye well? (Very well.)
Hey down! (Ho down!) Derry, derry down.
Among the leaves so green O.

The second doe, she crossed the brook
The Keeper fetched her back with his hook
Where she is now you may go and look
Among the leaves so green O.

Jackie boy! (Master!) 
Sing ye well? (Very well.)
Hey down! (Ho down!) Derry, derry down.
Among the leaves so green O.
