SIR ANDREW BARTON'.
And the men shall have five hundred markes For the good service they have done."               iso
Then in came the queene with ladyes fair, To see Sir Andrewe Barton, knight;
They weend that hee were brought on shore, And thought to have seen a gallant sight.
But when they see his deadlye face,                        iss
And eyes soe hollow in his head, " I wold give," quoth the king, " a thousand markes,
This man were alive as hee is dead. Yett for the manfull part hee playd,
Which fought soe well with heart and hand, 190 His men shall have twelvepence a day,
Till they come to my brother kings high land."
