Don't go in the woods at night,

Something about it ain't right!

People go it,

Never seen again,

Or they come out, sheet-linen white.

 

No, don't go in there after dark.

The ones that come out have a mark

Carved on their forehead

Is the mark of the dead.

Don't go in the woods after dark!

 

Do what is ever so right,

Rent my room for the night.

Thirty shillings ain't much,

It's a Mite of a  touch

And your journey resumes at first light.

 

With your room you get dinner too,

A pint of Ale and a bowl of stew.

There's bread with the meal,

It is a hell of a deal,

Just sign the roster. --- Won't you?
