4.    "Oh, Brother, take me on your back
And carry me to the churchyard, And there dig me a little grave Both wide and deep . . . ."

My satchel at my feet, My little bow and arrows at my side When I am sound asleep."
6.    "What will you tell your dear mamma
When you go home in the morning?" "I'll tell her that poor John is dead, Never to return."
7.    "What will you tell your dear papa
When he comes home in the evening?" "I'll set my foot on yonder ship And sail away to sea."
