Johnny Armstrong killed a calf

Melody -

Johnny Armstrong killed a calf,
Peter Henderson got half,
Willy Wilkinson got the head,
Ring the bell, the calf is dead.

Possibly refers to the famous freebooter of the Border country, John Armstrong, who was captured by James V of Scotland and hanged in 1528.
