Tony Rose - Lord Rendal lyrics

"Where have you been, Rendal my son?
Where have you been, my sweet pretty one?"
"I've been to my sweetheart's, mother make my bed soon,
For I'm sick to my heart and fain would like down."

"What did she give you, …?"
"She gave me some eels, …"

"What colour were they?"
"All spickled and speckled."

"Where did she get them?"
From hedges, from ditches."

"Where are your greyhounds?"
They swelled and they died."

"I fear you were poisoned."
Yes I'm poisoned."
