Off to Gulltown are the opening lyrics to an old song.[1] It is unknown if the song has a proper title.

Known Lyrics

Off to Gulltown to see the fair maid,
heigh-ho, heigh-ho.
I'll steal a sweet kiss with the point of my blade,
heigh-ho, heigh-ho.
I'll make her my love and we'll rest in the shade,
heigh-ho, heigh-ho.


Ser Arlan of Pennytree sang the song while he rode with Duncan the Tall to the tourney at Ashford Meadow in 209 AC. Arlan changed the lyrics to off to Ashford.[1]
