Old Bangum Old Bangum, he did hunt and ride Dillum down dillum Old Bangum, he did hunt and ride Dillum down Old Bangum, he did hunt and ride Sword and a pistol by his side Coo be kee, cuddle down, killie quo qum Similarly: There is a wild boar in these woods And he eats men's bones and he drinks their blood Old Bangum, he drew his wooden knife He swore he'd take that wild boar's life Old Bangum, he went to the old boar's den And he saw the bones of a thousand men That boar came out in such a dash He cut his way through oak and ash They fought four hours in that day Old bangum took the old boar's life away Old Bangum, did you win or lose? He swore by God he'd won his shoes Child #18 related to Sir Lionel even thought to be related to King Arthur's boar fight (before Lancelot et al got tacked onto Arthur's legend, he did things like hunt killer boars and kings) recorded by Dildine family SOF
