Title Young Jemmy: or, The princely shepherd Being a most pleasant and delightful new song. In blest Arcadia where each shepherd feeds, his numerous flocks, and tunes on slender reeds; his song of love, while the fair nimphs trip round, the chief amongst 'um was young Jemmy found: for he with glances could enslave each heart, but fond ambition made him to depart; the fields to court, led on by such as sought to blast his vertues, which much sorrow brought. To a pleasant new play-house tune. Or, in January last, or, The gowlin.
