beachcomber Lyr Req: Song about Fox Hunting (10) Lyr Req: Song about Fox Hunting 21 Jan 19


Before anybody jumps on me, let me say that I have searched the "files" here for the particular song for which I would love to have the full lyric.
I have lovely memories of an aged Grand-aunt who lived next door when I was a child and who used to mind me regularly. She would recite and sing all kinds of very old rhymes and songs to entertain me (and other young cousins )one of which had words in a chorus that included :-

"Tally-ho, tally-ho, pursue him,
the huntsmen loudly cried ....
(followed by two further lines,
the second of which would rhyme with "cried")

In the verses the huntsmen met with various individuals from the countryside who would each give varying locations in which they had seen "Sir Reynard" such as

"Among the hens and ducks"........or

"between the Reeks and Cocks"....or even

"among the weeds and rocks " etc

Does anyone remember such a song ? Those are all the snippets of memory that I have of the lyric.
