English Ballad

The cottage was a thatched one,
The outside old and green;
Yet everything within that place
Was wonderous neat and clean.

A little worn out creature
Whose once bright eyes grew dim;
He was a collier's only child,
They called him "Little Jim."

 

Submitter comment:

There is more to the ballad but informant couldn't recall it.
