In Waltham Cross Market
(Keith A of Hertford)
Tune: Dancing At Whitsun (False Bride)

In Waltham Cross market, they pass by the score,
Crowds all unknowing what passed there before,
And they spit gum and fag-ends where a king's tears once fell,
But in Waltham the cross stands in mem'ry.

A child of just ten years when she was his bride,
She would follow him always, and cleave to his side,
From Castile, to the cruel wars, and England's green shores,
In Waltham the cross stands in mem'ry.

On the day he fell dying by the Saracen blade,
By Eleanor's sweet lips his dear life was saved,
For they drew out the poisons that tainted his wound,
In Waltham the cross stands in mem'ry.

Sixteen dear children from their love was born,
'Twas only by death from his side she was torn,
And to mark where they paused on the road to her grave,
In Waltham the cross stands in mem'ry.
Aye, in Waltham the cross stands in mem'ry.
