G*$$@^^#d Tab key! Start again:

          There was a hunter in the green
          Dillum down dillum
          There was a hunter in the green
          Kummy koo kwan
          He spied a lady up a tree
          Kummy koo cuddle dan
          Killy ko kwan

          What keeps you here, my gay laydee?...
          I'm kept here by a wild boar....

          How many has he kille of thee?...
          Oh, he's killed my lord and thirty-three....

          How can I this wild boar see?
          Dillum down dillum
          How can I this wild boar see?
          Kummy koo kwan
          Just put your horn up to your mouth
          And blow the wind both north and south
          Kummy koo, cuddle dan,
          Killy ko kwan

          He put his horn up to his mouth...
          And blew the wind both north and south....

          This wild boar came with such a slash...
          That he cleared his way through oak and ash....

          Old Bangum caught him by the tail...
          And with a hick'ry did him frail....

          They fit four hours in the day...
          Oh, till last that wild boar ran away....

          Old Bangum tracked him to his den...
          Thar lay the bones of a thousand men!...

          (Then) Old Bangum drew his wooden knife...
          He rid that wild boar of its life....

          (Then) there came a wild woman out of the woods...
          She says, Now you've killed my sportin' pig!...

          Thar is three things I'll have of thee...
          That's your horse and hound and gay laydee....

          Oh, then she made a pass at him...
          But he split her from the mouth to chin...
