At the fAmourteenth of may aCt the dGawn of the dAmay With the gun on me shoulder to the woCods I dFid sAmtray In search of some game if the weCather grFew fAmair To see could I get a sChot at the bGonny black hAmare Well, I met a young girl there with a face as a rose And her skin was as fair as the lilys at close I says me fair maiden why ramble you so Can you tell me where the bonny black hare is to go Oh, the answer she gave me her answer was no But it sound to me (aprin*) they say you to go And if you not decieve me I bow and declare We both go together to hunt the bonny black hair Well, the lady-girl's down with her face to the sky And I took out me ramrod and me bullets likewise I said lock your legs around me and begin with your heels For the closer we get, oh, the better it feels And the birds they were singing in the bushes and trees And the song that they sang was obvious easy to please And I felt a heart quiver and I knew what I'd done Since I had you have enough of me old sporting gun Well, the answer she gave me, her answer was nay It's enough that young sportsmen like you comes this way And if your powder is willing and your bullets fly fair Why don't you keep firing at the bonny black hair Well, me powder is wasted and me bullets all gone Me ramrod is limb and I cannot fire on But I'll be back in the morning and if you are still here We'll both go together again to hunt the bonny black hare
