Here are the lyrics. Some of them have been lightly edited to
modernize spelling for ease of singing on the fly or to improve the
scansion (especially in the case of the Jovial Broome Man); some of
them have had verses removed or reordered to fit the number of repeats
in the dance, etc. I did transcribe most of them from the Roxburghe
Ballads collection
<http://www.archive.org/details/roxburgheballads01hinduoft> or other
more original sources as available, rather than copying the lyrics
from the arrangements we were playing from.

Here is the link to the lyrics sheet:
