John Peel (Do you ken John Peel) Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
John Peel is a favourite English hunting song, dating from shortly before the middle of the l9th century. The hero, John Peel, was a Cumberland farmer, who kept a pack of fox hounds. The words of the song are by John Woodcock Graves, a fellow Cumbrian, and the melody is derived from an old nursery rhyme known as Bonnie Annie, or Whar wad Bonnie Annie lie.

D'ye ken John Peel with his coat so gay,
D'ye ken John Peel at the break of day,
D'ye ken John Peel when he's far away,
With his hounds and his horn in the morning.
For the sound of his horn brought me from my bed
And the cry of his hounds which he oft times led,
Peel's 'view hullo' would awaken the dead
Or the fox from his lair in the morning.
