Behind cell door nine is our man Jed
Had killed two men, so it was said,
A fight at the mill had bought about his fate
Both had been stabbed, so the witness did relate.
Two shillings and sixpence was all that he gained
To feed his poor family, all those that remained,
The Court past sentence as he lowered his head
To hang by the neck, until he was dead.
The hanging of Jed, brought amazement to all
For stabbing the men he could not recall,
Taking the money he did so admit
But there in his cell, his ghost remained albeit.
