Made every youth crye, wel-awaye!
Her name was Barbara Allen.

And seemely is to see;
And there with him queene Guenever,
That bride soe bright of blee.

There came a ghost to Margaret's door,
With many a grievous grone,
And ay he tirled at the pin;
But answer made she none.

On Trinitye Mondaye in the morne,
This sore battayle was doom'd to bee,
Where manye a knighte cry'd, Well-awaye!
