Jack Had-Lands Lamentation, / That sold and made away his 'State, / And spent his Money early and late; / And let his Wife and Children want, / Now he makes great moan and does repent; / And desires all good-fellows where e're they be, / To take warning of his poverty. / He was cast in Prison at that bout, / His poor Wife she helpt him out; / She had small reason to do that thing / But true love is a gallant thing; / There is scarce a Tap-house in London town / Will help a Man when he is cast down.
