Lyr. Add: THE WOLF IS OUT!
Lyrics H. Russell and J. Arnold; music T. Cooke
(and sung by Russell and Arnold).

Arm, broth-ers arm! the Wolf, the Wolf is out,
The coun-try's up and the Bow-men shout!
The Shep-herd leaves his flee-cy care,
The glo-rious sport of the day to share.
Night is fled and the morn is grey
Arm broth-ers arm to the *chace away.
And broth-ers arm to the chace away
to the chace to the chace away a-way!
In yonder thicket close and dark
softly tread and care-ful mark!
softly tread and care-ful mark!
'Tis there the wolf is wont to prowl
and hark hark I hear hark!
hark I hear the savage howl!
Of-ten in the dead of night,
When to sleep our toils invite,
His hor-rid yell fond mothers hear
And clo-ser press their in-fants dear!
Hence to the field and the sa-vage soon
soon shall cease to bay the cloud-less Moon
No more no more to range to range our fields
For food or wel-ter in the trav'-ler's blood
No more to range our fields for food or wel-ter
in the trav'-ler's blood
no more to range our fields for food or wel-ter
in the trav'-ler's blood
no more to range our fields for food or wel-ter
in the trav'-ler's blood!
The trav'-ler's blood.
The trav'-ler's trav'-ler's blood!

Sung in the 1830s. I would like to have heard them.

Atwill's Music Saloon, NYC.
Sheet music at Levy Sheet Music, n. d.
*chace- spelling in the sheet music.
