Willie O Winsbury

Verse 1
    G        D               A7
The king has been a poor prisoner
      G        A7       G
And a prisoner long in Spain
    D     Bm       F#m
And Willie O the Winsbury
          D              Bm       G
Has lain long with his daughter Jane.


 Verse 2
    G                 D             A7
What ails you, what ails you, my daughter Jane
      G          A7       G
Why you look so pale and wan?
 D       Bm        F#m
Have you had any sore sickness
    D              Bm       G
Or yet been sleeping with a man?


 Verse 3
    G        D             A7
I have not had no sore sickness
      G        A7            G
Nor yet been sleeping with a man
    D     Bm     F#m
It is for you my father dear
    D          Bm       G
For biding so long in Spain.


 Verse 4
      G        D          A7
Cast off, cast off, your berry brown gown
      G      A7       G
Stand naked on the stone
    D     Bm        F#m
That I may know you by your shape
  D          Bm       G
If you be a maiden or none.


 Verse 5
    G         D           A7
And shes cast off her berry brown gown
      G     A7     G
Stood naked on the stone
    D          Bm             F#m
her apron was tight and her haunches was round
  D          Bm       G
Her face was pale and wan.


 Verse 6
    G             D             A7
And was it with a lord or a duke or a knight
      G      A7       G
Or a man of birth and fame
    D          Bm          F#m
Or was it with one of my serving men
     D         Bm         G
While I was a prisoner in Spain?


 Verse 7
      G            D             A7
No it wasnt with a lord or a duke or a knight
      G      A7       G
Or a man of birth and fame
    D       Bm         F#m
It was with Willie o Winsbury
        D        Bm     G
I could bide no longer alone.


 Verse 8
        G        D          A7
And the king has called his serving men
  G        A7       G
By one by two and by three
    D         Bm                F#m
Saying, Where is this Willie o Winsbury?
    D       Bm       G
For hanged he shall be.


 Verse 9
    G        D         A7
And when they came before the king
   G        A7       G
By one, by two and by three
    D             Bm                  F#m
Willie should have been the first of them
       D           Bm     G
But the last of them was he.


 Verse 10
    G     D         A7
And Willie O the Winsbury
      G           A7    G
All dressed out in red silk
    D     Bm             F#m
His hair hung like the strands of gold
    D          Bm       G
His breast was white as milk.


 Verse 11
    G         D             A7
No wonder, no wonder, the king he said,
      G          A7           G
That my daughters love you did win
    D         Bm      F#m
If I were a woman as I am a man
  D        Bm               G
In my own bed you would have been.


 Verse 12
    G        D                A7
And will you marry my daughter Jane
      G        A7           G
By the faith of your right hand?
    D               Bm          F#m
And Ill make you the lord of my serving men
    D            Bm         G
Ill make you the heir of my land.


 Verse 13
    G        D          A7
Oh yes, Ill marry your daughter Jane
        G       A7       G
By the faith of my right hand.
        D          Bm         F#m
But Ill not be the lord of any men,
    D           Bm          G
Ill not be the heir to your land.


 Verse 14
       G           D               A7
And he raised her up on a milk-white steed
   G        A7       G
Himself on a dapple grey
      D             Bm            F#m
He has made her the lady of as much land
          D          Bm           G
As she can ride in a long summers day.
