Innocent Hare
  or SPORTSMEN AROUSE
  from the singing of the Copper Family

Sportsmen arouse, the morning is clear
The larks are singing all in the air
Sportsmen arouse, the morning is clear
The larks are singing all in the air
Go tell your sweet lover, the hounds are out
Go tell your sweet lover the hounds are out
Saddle your horses, your saddles prepare
We'll away to cover to seek for a hare

We searched the woods the groves all around
The trail being over, the game being found...
We searched the woods the groves all around
The trail being over, the game being found...
Then u-up she springs, through brake she flies...
Then u-up she springs, through brake she flies...
Follow, follow the musical horn
Sing follow, hark follow, the innocent hare

The huntsman blows his joyful sound
Tally ho, me boys, all over the down
The huntsman blows his joyful sound
Tally ho, me boys, all over the down
From the woods to the valleys, see how she creeps
From the woods to the valleys, see how she creeps
Follow, follow the musical horn
Sing follow, hark follow, the innocent hare

All along the green turf she pants for breath
The huntsman he cries out for death
All along the green turf she pants for breath
The huntsman he cries out for death
Relope, relope, retiring hare
Relope, relope, retiring hare
Follow, follow the musical horn
Sing follow, hark follow, the innocent hare
This hare has led us a noble run
Success to sportsman, every one
This hare has led us a noble run
Success to sportsman, every one
Such a chase she has led us, four hours or more
Such a chase she has led us, four hours or more
Wine and beer we'll drink without fear
We'll drink a success to the innocent hare
