"I never hurt fair maid in all my time, Nor at mine end shall it be;
But give me my bent bow in my hand,
And a broad arrow, I'll let flee;
And where this arrow is taken up, There shall my grave digged be."
 
Robin Hood's death, from "The English and Scottish Popular Ballads" by Francis James Child, 1888, version B.
