A new ballad of the three merry butchers, and ten high-way men, how three butchers went to pay five hundred pounds away, and hearing a woman crying in the vvood, went to relieve her and was there set upon by the ten high-way men; and how only stout Johnson fought with them all; who killed eight of the ten; and at last was killed by the woman he went to save in the wood. To an excellent new tune.
Printed for J. Bissel at the Bible and Harp in West Smithfield,
[between 1685 and 1695]
