Subject: RE: What are jubal hounds?
Here is what I found Googling Jubal Hound


The Foxhunt

You gentlemen of high renown come listen unto me
That take delight in foxhunting in every high degree
A story true to you I'll tell concerning of a fox
Of Royston Hills and mountains high and over stony rocks

Old Reynold being in his den and hearing of these hounds
Which made him for to prick his ears and tread upon the ground
Methinks me hears some jubal hounds pressing upon my life
Before that they to me shall come I'll tread upon the ground

We hunted full four hours or more by parishes sixteen
We hunted full four hours or more and come by Parkworth Green
Oh if you'll only spare my life I promise and fulfil
I'll touch no more of your feathered fowl nor lamb in yonder fold

Old Reynold beat and out of breath and dreading of these hounds
Thinking that he might lose his life before the jubal hounds
Oh here's adieu to duck and geese likewise young lamb also
They've got old Reynold by the brush and will not let him go
