GUEST, Lyr Req: Tally Ho (fox hunt: 'galloping galloping… (24) RE: title req.: fox hunt song from 50s 28 Apr 04

Hi--I'm interested in finding the tune for this song. I see no one was able to track it down in the year 2000, but maybe someone else will be able to.
Just to refresh your collective memories, it's a song quoted in the children's book "Miracles on Maple Hill" by Virginia Sorensen
The first verse isn't given, but it has huntsmen coming in their scarlet coats, horns blowing.
2nd verse:
Say there, youngster, the huntsmen cry
"Say, have you seen the fox go by?
Galloping, galloping, galloping, galloping, galloping, galloping,
Over the hill?
But would I be telling them? No, not I!
Wearily panting, worn and spent
Would I be telling the way he went?
Galloping, galloping, galloping,
No! Not I!

I can handle ABC if it's in that format. Or an attachment. Or a citation. Anything! Thanks!
