The keeper did a hunting go
And under his cloak he carried a bow
All for to shoot at a merry little doe
Among the leaves so greeno.

Chorus:
Jackie boy (Master) Sing ye well (Very well)
Hey down (Ho down) Der-ry der-ry down
A-mong the leaves so green-o
To my hey down down (To my ho down down )
Hey down (Ho down) Der-ry der-ry down
The A-mong the leaves so green-o

The first doe she did cross the plain,
The keeper fetched her back again.
Where she is now, she may remain,
Among the leaves so green-o.

CHORUS

The next doe she did cross the brook.
The keeper fetched her back with his hook.
Where she is now you may go and look
Among the leaves so green-o.

CHORUS

The keeper did a hunting go.
In the woods he caught a doe.
She looked so sad that he let her go.
Among the leaves so green-o.
