Young Ned of the Hill has no castle nor home Nor bowman nor spearman to come at his call But one little archer with exquisite skill Has shot a bright shaft for young Ned of the Hill It is hard to escape from this young lady’s power For high is the castle and guarded the tower But the mind knows the way where the heart holds the will And Eileen has gone with young Ned of the Hill
