JOHNSTON, SAM THE JOB THAT I THINK’S NICE AND FAIR

The job that I think’s nice and fair,

Though he stands the mountain bare,

His counted flock he has to keep;

He is the keeper of the sheep.

When the sun doth burn the mountain-side,

The lonely shepherd his face doth hide,

While the wise sheep-dog looks after the sheep,

As they graze by the waters wide and deep.
