No. 8
Sir Lionel
2   Bangry rode to the wild boar's den
And there spied the bones of a thousand men.
3   Then Bangry drew his wooden knife To spear the wild boar of his life.
Sung by Mrs. Betty Smith and Mr. N. B. Chisholm at Woodridge, Va., Sept. 27, 1916
2   Bangrum drew his wooden knife
And swore he'd take the wild boar's life.
3   The wild boar came in such a flash, He broke his way through oak and ash.
