No. 361. A nobleman liv'd in a village of late.
Tune : The poor thresher Scots Musical Museum, 1792, No. 372.
A nobleman Hv'd in a vjjlage of late, Hard by a poor thresher whose toil it was great, Who had many children and most of them small, And nought but his labor to keep them up all.
The poor man was seen to go early to work; He never was known to idle or lurk ; With his flail on his back and his bottle of beer, As happy as those that have thousands a year. &c, &c.
Wha ys fou now, my jo.
Fair Emma.
Can ye leave me so, laddie.
