I asked Tim and Maddy where the song came from when I heard them sing it at Cecil Sharp House in the late 1960s - Maddy gave me Geoff Woods' address, and he sent me a (reel to reel) tape of some of his field recordings of this and "Tally Ho" being sung in pub sessions.

It's far after ten my good children
You know it is fast getting late
So we'll wait for another cold evening
And I'll tell you of Reynard's sad fate.
