Ballad.

The Ballad of Tom Swain.

Refrain:

Tom Swain, Tom Swain, Tom Swain ,Tom Swain.
You liar and a cheat.
No fish so big as fills the frame
That you were moot to meet.

Tom Swain, an angler of repute,
He cast his lines far wide,
His catch was never less than huge,
Not always verified.

One day he caught a fish so large,
It pulled him in and he
Vanished out of ,sight, swallowed up,
A bigger fish than he.

Refrain;

How Sad Am I?

How Sad Am I?
This site of ancient dreams.
How Sad Am I?
Not fully knowing why
I am scorned by some who
Once confessed me true.
How Sad Am I?

Ray;

I've seen this form used before, but didn't know what it was, or even if it was a recognized form. Now I know! Thanks for demonstrating it so well.
