Mott's Taphouse — Imperium


Will ye meet me, down by the Howling Tree?
Where the apples drop,
Till the ale flows fast
And the horses run
till the work gets done!

Oh ho the Howling Tree, what a sight to see,
Well, meet me, ye lasses three, down oh down by the Howling Tree

Will ye meet me, down by the Howling Tree?
Where a lass did fall,
Down the hill so fast,
And there cracked her skull
On that jagged knoll

Oh ho the Howling Tree, what a sight to see,
Well meet me, ya lasses two, down oh down by the Howling Tree

Will ye meet me, down by the Howling Tree?
Where a lass might slip,
On off the tall tall cliff,
And to her doom fell,
Her face now is pale.

Oh ho the Howling Tree, what a sight to see,
Well meet me , ya lassie one, down oh down by the Howling Tree

Will ye meet me, down by the Howling Tree?
Where a boy might fall,
Into a deep deep pit,
And under dirt stay,
For he's died today!

Oh ho the Howling Tree, what a sight to see,
Well meet me, ya mourners see, down oh down by the Howling Tree
