Children's Rhyme-Games - King Henry

"King Henry" somewhat resembles "I dree I droppit;'' only. instead of standing, the girls forming the ring; sit, or rather crouch in at sort of working-tailor attitude. One girl, occupying the centre, is "it." A second girl is on the outside. Immediately the ring begins singing the rhyme:

King Henry, King Henry,
Run, boys, run;
You, with the red coat.
Follow with the drum,

the one on the outside is pursued by the girl from the centre. The rhyme may be repeated as often as the ring decides; but the object of the one who is "it" is to overtake and "tig" the other before the singing ceases. Otherwise she remains unrelieved, and must try, and try, until she succeeds in getting out, and putting another in her place; and so on.
