Reel 307, Item 2
Old Bangum and the Boar
Old Bangum would a-hunting ride,
Dillum down dillum Old Bangum would a-hunting ride,
Dillum down Old Bangum would a-hunting ride,
Sword and pistol by his side,
Dillum dee, dillum down Dillum quo quee.
There is a wild boar in this wood,
Will eat your meat and suck your blood. (1.)
Oh, how shall I this wild boar see?
Blow a blast and he'll come to thee.
Old Bangum blew both loud and shrill,
The wild boar heard on Temple Hill.
The wild boar came with such a rush,
He tore down hick'ry, oak, and ash.
Old Bangum drew his wooden knife,
And swore that he would take his life.
Old Bangum did you win or lose?
He swore that he had won the shoes.
