The Grey Hawk


Once I had a grey hawk, a pretty grey hawk, a sweet pretty bird of my own
But she took a flight, she flew away quite,
And nobody knows where she's gone my brave boys,
And nobody knows where she's gone

O'er the green hills I rambled away, and across the green fields I did stray,
I holl'rd I whooped, I played on my flute,
Not my sweet pretty bird could I find my brave boys,
Not my sweet pretty bird could I find

Through the green forests I rambled away and along the green paths I did stray,
And there I did spy my sweet pretty bird,
A
and close by the side of a man she did lay,
She was close by the side of a man

Now he that has got here is welcome to her, to do the best with her he can
But whilst he has got, and I have her not,
I will hawk with her once now and then my brave boys,
I will hawk with her once now and then
