The heavy Heart, and a light Purse. / Being the good fellows vindication to all his fellow Companions, wishing them / all to have a care, and keep out of the Ale-wives snare, for when they are out you / may get in, / but when you are in, you can't get out, this by experience he hath / found true, but now he bids them all adieu. / This Song it was composed and made / By a Loyal heart that is called John Wade.
