Title: The Woodpigeon urging the Welsh Farmers to Steal


In the English counties bordering upon Wales, such as Herefordshire, the wood pigeon encouraged Welshmen to drive off Englishmen’s cattle to their homes, by saying:—|Take two cows, Taffy,|Take two cows, Taffy,|Take two.|and ever since those days the same song is used; but another version is:—|Take two cows Davy,|Take two cows Davy,|Two.|
