The Valiant's Daughter of Hazling Town
(Child # 105)
There was a youth, a lovelie youth,
The squire's onlie son,
Who fell in love with the valiant's daughter,
The belle of Hazling Town.
When their old parents they came to know The intentions of both minds,
They banished him away to London Town His presence to confine.
Oh, they banished him away to London Town,
All so as to be confined,
While the valiant's daughter of Hazling Town She still run through his mind.
One evening, one evening, one evening late,
The maids of Hazlingtown Went out to sport and play,
While the valiant's daughter of Hazling Town She slylie stoled away.
She dressed herself in scarlet red,
Stood by the broad wayside,
And who did she spy but her old true love Come a-riding by.
Straightway, straightway to him she went,
And she caught by the bridle reins,
One penny, one penny of charity,
A traveller I'll maintain.
Oh, it's where are you going, my pretty little miss? Likewise, it's who can you be?
Oh, I am bound from Hazling Town,
A native ground, you see.
And it's you are bound from Hazling Town,
What news can you give from the valiant's daughter Is she dead or does she live?

Reel 361, Item 10
Oh, the valiant's daughter of Hazling Town She died six months ago,
And the valiant's daughter of Hazling Town She lies in her green grave low.
Oh, it's take from me my milk-white steed, Likewise my sword and bow,
And I'll go roving over the sea,
Where no one I do know.
And I'll go roving over the sea Where there's no one I can find,
For the valiant's daughter of Hazling Town She'll still run through my mind.
Oh, the valiant's daughter of Hazling Town She now stands by your side,
And the valiant's daughter of Hazling Town Intends for to be your bride.
