They rode along together to the foot of the hill, When Turpin bid the lawyer to stand still, Saying, "The cape of your coat it must come off, For my horse is in want of a new saddle-cloth."
Turpin robbed the lawyer of all his store, He told him to go home and he would get more, "And the very first town that you come in, You can tell them you was robbed by Dick Turpin."
Come all you bold undaunted men, you outlaws of
the day, It's time to beware of the ball and chain and also
slavery. Attention pay to what I say, and verily if you do, I will relate you the actual fate of bold Jack Donahoo.
He had scarcely landed as I tell you, upon AustraUa's
shore, Than he became a real highwayman, as he had been
before. There was Underwood and Mackerman, and Wade
and Westley too, These were the four associates of bold Jack Donahoo.
