raredance Wild Boar: History, Lyrics & Discussion-Child #18 (102* d) Lyr Add: OLD BANGUM 24 Aug 02


OLD BANGUM
(sung by A H Pittser of Shamrock) from Ballads and Folk Songs of the Southwest

Old Bangum would a-hunting go,
Come away cuddle down.
Old Bangum would a-hunting go,
Come away.
Old Bangum would a-hunting go;
No braver man ever drew a bow.
Cuddle down, kill-a-quaw-queen.

Old Bangum put his horn to his mouth,
And blew a blast both east and west.

The wild boar heard him in his den,
And he made the oak tree come to an end.

There is a wild boar in the woods,
He'll kill you and suck your blood.

Old Bangum on this wild boar fell,
They fought three hours like fiends from hell.

Old Bangum drew his wooden knife,
And freed the wild boar of his life.

They tracked this wild boar to his den,
And found the skulls of a thousand men.

Long come an old witch inquiring of her spotted pig,
If you kill me I'll make you dance a jig.
