Broadside ballad entitled 'Hatton Woods' or 'The Bonnie Woods o' Hatton'
This Popular Song can always be had at the Poet's Box,
Ye comrades and companions, and all ye females dear,
To my sad lamentations, I pray you lend an ear ;
There was once I lo'ed a bonnie lass, I lo'ed her as my life,
And it was my whole intention to make her my we dded wife.
I courted we' the bonnie lass a Twelve-month-and-a-day,
Now say my dearest Molly when shall we set a time,
There's Cadum and there's Cadum Mills and Luther Mills likewise
I'll mind about you bonnie lass when I am far awa,
But blessings on yon bonnie lass, where ever she may be,
