Where did you go, Lord Randall my son?
Where did you go, my beloved one?
Down in the glen, down in the glen.
Make me my bed, I've a pain in me head.
And I fain would lie down, and I fain would lie down.

What did you do there, Lord Randall my son?
What did you do there, my beloved one?
I dined with my true love, I dined with my true love,
Make me my bed, I've a pain in me head.
And I fain would lie down, and I fain would lie down.

What did you eat there, Lord Randall my son?
What did you eat there, my beloved one?
Eels and eels broth, eels and eels broth,
Make me my bed, I've a pain in me head.
And I fain would lie down, and I fain would lie down.

I fear you are poisoned, Lord Randall, my son.
I fear you are poisoned, my beloved one.
Indeed I am poisoned, indeed I am poisoned,
Make me my bed, I've a pain in me head.
And I fain would lie down, and I fain would lie down.

What will you leave to your mother, my son?
What will you leave to your mother, oh ill-fated one?
My gold and my silver, my gold and my silver.
Make me my bed, I've a pain in me head.
And I fain would lie down, and I fain would lie down.

What will you leave to your sweetheart, my son?
What will you leave to your sweetheart, oh ill-fated one?
A rope to hang her, a rope to hang her,
Make me my bed, I've a pain in me head.
And I fain would lie down, and I fain would lie down.

1-Hunting as a resource

"I have been at the greenwood; mother, make my bed soon,
For I am sick with huntin' and fain would lie down."

The "greenwood" here is a forest, where most of the hunting would have been done.

Lord Randal is a very ancient ballad, from a time when horses were rare and hunting was done on foot


"And what got your leavins, my handsome young man.
My hawks and my hounds; mother, make my bed soon,
For I am sick with huntin' and fain would lie down."

Although hounds were also used while hunting on horseback, the use of a hawk was normally done while the hunter was in foot.


3- Forests covered most of the land but were dangerous and mysterious places


"And what got your leavins, my handsome young man.
My hawks and my hounds; mother, make my bed soon,
For I am sick with huntin' and fain would lie down.
And what became of them, Lord Randal, my son?
And what became of them, my handsome young man?
They stretched their legs out and died; mother, make my bed soon"

The "leavings" in this text is the food that was left over after dinner. Lord Randall gave the leftover food to his dogs and his hawks, and they immediately became stiff and died,indicating that whatever his lover had given him had been poisoned. The woods was the place were this dark magic took place.

4-Land was the major resource and the most valuable commodity.


"What did you leave to your brother, Lord Randal, my son?
What did you leave to your brother, my handsome young man.
My house and my land; mother, make my bed soon,
For I am sick with at the heart and fain would lie down."


To his brother, who is presumably his closest living male relative, he gave his most prized possessions-- the house that he owned and his land.
