The False Knight Upon the Road
Sung by Mrs. T. G. Coates Hexatonic. Mode 4, b.                                                  at Flag Pond, Tenn., Sept. 1, 1916
2   O what are you going there for ? For to learn the Word of God.
3   O what have you got there ?
I have got my bread and cheese.
4   O won't you give me some ? No, ne'er a bite nor crumb.
5   I wish you was on the sands. Yes, and a good staff in my hands.
6   I wish you was in the sea. Yes, and a good boat under me.
7   I think I hear a bell.
Yes, and it's ringing you to hell.
