Retired Scouter Campfire Songs 


Keeper


The keeper did a hunting go
And under his cloak he carried a bow
All for to shoot of a merry little doe
Among the leaves so green O.

CHORUS:- (2 parts)
1. Jacky Boy
2. Master
1. Sing ye well
2. Very Well
1. Hey Down
2. Ho down
1. Derry derry down
Amongst the leaves go green O. (both)
1. To my hey down, down
2. To my ho down, down
1. Hey Down
2. Ho Down
1. Derry derry down
Amongst the leaves so green O. (both)

The first doe he shot and he missed
The second doe he trimmed, he kissed,
The third doe went where nobody whist
Amongst the leaves so green O.

CHORUS

The fourth doe she did cross the plain
The keeper fetched her back again,
Where she is now she may remain
Amongst the leaves so green O.

CHORUS

The fifth doe she did cross the brook
The keeper fetched her back with his crook,
Where she is now you must go and look
Amongst the leaves go green O.

CHORUS

The sixth doe she ran o'er the plain
But he with his hounds did turn her again,
And there he did hunt in a merry merry vein
Amongst the leaves so green O.

CHORUS
