Subject: Help! Need song title
Hi,

There is a song about a fox hunt in which every stanza ends with "galloping, galloping, galloping by." The last two (or so) lines go something like: "Would I be telling the way he went - galloping, galloping, galloping by - No, not I."

Does anyone know song title and/or author and/or lyrics? The song is quoted in the kids book from 1957 "Miracles on Maple Hill" by Virginia Sorensen, but the book does not credit the song.

Thanks so much!
