KING HENRY STEELEYE SPAN
Em G D Em 
Let never a man a wooing wend That lacketh things three,
Em Em G D EmA store of gold, and open heart, And full of charity;
Em D And this was seen of King Henry Though he lay quite alone,
Em G D Em DFor he's taken him to a haunted hall Seven miles from the town.
Em G D EmHe's chased the deer now him before And the doe down by the den
Em G D EmTill the fattest buck in all the flock King Henry he has slain.
Em DHis huntsmen followed him to the hall To make them burly cheer,
Em D Em D Em DWhen loud the wind was heard to sound And an earthquake rocked the floor.
Em G D EmAnd darkness covered all the hall Where they sat at their meat,
Em G D EmThe grey dogs, yowling, left their food And crept to Henry's feet.
Em DAnd louder howled the rising wind And burst the fastened door,
Em D Em D Em DAnd in there came a grisly ghost Stramping on the floor.
Em G D EmHer head hit the roof-tree of the house, Her middle you could not span,
Em G D Em
Each frightened huntsman fled the hall And left the king alone,
Em DHer teeth were like the tether stakes, Her nose like club or mell,
Em D Em D Em DAnd nothing less she seemed to be Than a fiend that comes form hell.
EmSome meat, some meat you King Henry, Some meat you give to me,
Em G D EmGo kill your horse you King Henry And bring him here to me;
Em D He's gone and slain his berry brown steed Though it made his heart full sore,
Em D Em D Em DFor she's eaten up both skin and bone Left nothing but hide and hair.
EmMore meat, more meat you King Henry More meat you give to me


Em G D EmGo Kill your greyhounds King Henry And bring them here to me;
Em DAnd when he's slain his good greyhounds, It made his heart full sore,
Em D Em D Em DShe's eaten them up both skin and bone, Left nothing but hide and hair.
EmMore meat, more meat you King Henry More meat you give to me,
Em G D EmGo fell your goshawks King Henry And bring them here to me;
Em DAnd when he's slain his gay goshawks, It made his heart full sore,
Em D Em D Em DShe's eaten them up both skin and bone, Left nothing but feathers bare.
EmSome drink, some drink now King Henry Some drink you give to me,
Em G D EmOh you sew up your horse's hide And bring in drink to me,
Em DAnd he's sewed up the bloody hide And a pipe of wine put in,
Em D Em D Em DAnd she's drank it up all in one draught Left never a drop there in.
EmA bed, a bed now King Henry, A bed you'll make for me,
Em G D EmOh you must pull the heather green And make it soft for me;
Em DAnd pulled has he the heather green And made for her a bed,
Em D Em D Em DAnd taken has he his gay mantle And o'er it he has spread.
EmTake off your clothes now King Henry And lie down by my side,
Em G D EmNow swear, now swear you King Henry To take me for your bride.
Em DOh God forbid, says King Henry, That ever the like betide,
Em D Em D Em DThat ever a fiend that comes from hell Should stretch down by my side.
Em G D EmWhen the night was gone and the day was come And the sun shone through the hall,
Em G D EmThe fairest lady that ever was seen Lay between him and the wall.
Em DI've met with many a gentle knight That gave me such a fill,
Em D Em D Em DBut never before with a courteous knight That gave me all my will.

TWO MAGICIANS  STEELEYE SPAN



C G CShe looked out of the window as white as any milk
C G CAnd he looked in at the window as black as any silkChorus:
C G CHello, hello, hello, hello you coal black smith
C F GYou have done me no harm
GYou never shall have my maidenhead
C G CThat I have kept so long
C G CI'd rather die a maid
C F GAh, but then she said and be buried all in my grave
GThan to have such a nasty, husky, dusky, fusky, musky
C G CCoal black smith
F G CA maiden I will die
C G CShe became a duck, a duck all on the stream
C F G CAnd he became a waterdog and fetched her back againChorus
C G CShe became a star, a star all in the night
C F G CAnd he became a thundercloud and muffled her out of sightChorus
C G CShe became a rose, a rose all in the wood
C F G CAnd he became a bumblebee and kissed her where she stoodChorus
C G CShe became a nun, a nun all dressed in white
C F G CAnd he became a chantry (canting?) priest to pray for her by nightChorus
C G CShe became a trout, a trout all in the brook
C F G CAnd he became a feathered fly and catched her with his hookChorus
C G C*She became a corpse, a corpse all in the ground
C F G CAnd he became the cold clay and smothered her all aroundChorus*an alternate version of the final verse is:She became a quilt, a quilt all on her bedAnd he became a coverlet, and gained her maidenhead!*another alternate final verse:She became a bottle of wine, filled with sparkling redAnd he became a big thick cork and gained her...
