History is reflected in the words of folk songs

   The Trooper Cut Down - - As I was a-walking down by the Lock Hospita - Dark was the morning and cold was the day - Who should I spy but one of my comrade - Draped in a blanket and cold as the clay. - 2. Then beat the drums slowly and play the pipes lowly - Sound the dead march as we carry him along - And over his coffin throw handfuls of laurel - For he's a young trooper cut down in his prime. - - 3. O mother, o mother come sit you down by me - Sit you down by me and pity my plight - My body is injured and sadly disordered - All by a young woman my own heart's delight. - - 4. Had she but told me when she did disorder me - Had she but told me about it in tim - I might have got salts and pills of white mercury - But now I'm cut down in the height of my prime.
