THE DUKE OF BEDFORD Traditional Six lords went a hunting Down by the sea side, And they spied a dead body Wash'd away by the tide. They took him to Portsmouth, The place he was known And straight away to London The place he was born. They open'd his bowels And stretch'd out his fee, And garnish'd him all over With lilies so sweet. 'Twas the Noble Duke of Bedford, The sea had upthrown, 'Twas the Noble Duke of Bedford The sea had upthrown. But some folks disputed The huntmen's bare word Until a grand lady Cried; 'Tis my dear lord. She kneel'd down beside him And kiss'd his cold cheek And sadly did murmur; Whose poor heart will break. For him I did worship, Who no more will speak To kindred and vassals Who gaze on the form. Of the noble Duke of Bedford In his coffin of stone, Of the noble Duke of Bedford In his coffin of stone. Within Woburn Abbey His body was laid, Amongst his ancestors, Whose deeds are not dead. And a weird rush of waters Is heard to this day, When a noble Duke of Bedford Is passing away.
