GUEST,Marie Lyr Add: Young Hunting (13) Lyr Add: Young Hunting 11 Oct 03


Hi! I was wondering if any kind person could help me to complete this lyric? I figuered out most of the words, but since English is not my native language I'm not entirely sure and there are still some words/sentences missing. Could anyone help me?      /Marie


Young Hunting

Young Hunting is to the castle gone
As fast as he can ride,
With a hunting-horn slung at his waist
And a broadsword by his side.

Oh a broadsword by his side
A broadsword by his side
With a hunting-horn hung slung at this waist
And a broadsword by his side.

When he came up to the castles's gates
He tirled at the pin,
But noone was ready but the lady fair
Did rise and let him in.

You're welcome here, my young Hunting
To call and candle light
So welcome are you, my young Hunting
Just to lie with me this night

To lie with me this night, sweet boy
To lie with this night
So welcome are you, my young Hunting
Just to lie with me this night

Well, I thank you for your light lady
And so I for your call
But there's a fairer girl worth ten of you
Meet me down by the town wall

Well, he bent down from his saddlebow
Just to kiss her ruby cheek;
But she pulled out a small sharp knife ,
And she wounded him full deep.

She wounded him full deep, me boys
She wounded him full deep
Aut she pulled out a small sharp knife ,
And she wounded him full deep.

She called upon her Irish maid
So long before the day
There lies a dead man in my bower
And I wish he was away

So they ?? him and ?? up
As he was once to ride
And they carried him to the wide water
They called the river Clyde

Oh, they called the river clyde
They called the river Clyde
And they carried him to the wide water
That they called the river Clyde

One did take him by the foot
And another by his head
They throw him in by the water's deep
And he sank to the riverbed

Lie there, lie there, you young Hunting
'Til the blood cease from your bones
For that fairer girl worth ten of me
Will wait long of you come home

Will wait long of you come home
Oh, will wait long as you come home
That fairer girl worth ten of me
Will wait long of you come home

Then up spoke a bonnie little bird
That flew up in the trees
Go home, go home, you false lady
And pay your maid her fee

Come down, come down, me bonnie little bird
Come down unto my hands
A cage, I make of the fine beaten gold
And now is the willow won (???????)

You can keep your cage of the fine beaten gold
And I'll keep my truth
For as you did to Young Hunting
And so you'll do to me

Oh, and so you'll do to me
So you'll do to me
For as you did to Young Hunting
And so you'll do to me

And it turned out the very next day
The king was going to ride
And he called out for Young Hunting
To ride all at his side

But the lady swore by the grass of green
And so she by the corn
I have not seen Young Hunting
Since yesterday at morn

But I saw him down by the river Clyde
And I fear his drowned there in
So they sent down the divers bold
Just to dive for Young Hunting

Oh, to dive for Young Hunting
To dive for Young Hunting
And they sent down the divers bold
Just to dive for Young Hunting

But then up spoke that bonnie little bird
Of the ? above their heads
Dive on, dive on, ye divers bold
For there he lies indeed

Lay of your diving in the day
And dive all in the night
And where Young Hunting he does lie
The candles will burn full bright

Oh, the candles will burn full bright, me boys
The candles will burn full bright
And where Young Hunting he does lie
The candles will burn full bright

So they left of diving in the day
And they dived all in the night
And where Young Hunting he did lie
The candles did burn full bright.

Then pale and white was his wounds of wash
Just white as a linnen cloth
And when the lady she came near
The blood came goushing?) out

Oh, the blood came goushing?) out
The blood came goushing?) out
And when the lady she came near
The blood came goushing?) out

Oh, it must have been my Irish maid
So will may she be tied
For I'd never taken Young Hunting
And throw(?) him in the Clyde

So they are taken out that Irish maid
And a ??? of fire and set her in
But the flames wouldn't taken upon her cheek
Not yet upon her chin

So they are taken out that Irish maid
And they are throwing the lady in
And the flames they took to her skin and hair
And she burned like a hollow green (?)

Oh, she burned like a hollow green (?)
She burned like a hollow green (?)
And the flames they took to her skin and hair
And she burned like a hollow green (?)
