WHEN WE WERE UNDER THE KING Lyrics And Chords 4/4 (traditional)

This song is also known as ‚Three Jolly Rogues of Lynne’ and ‚Three Roguish Chaps’ with the last one using slightly different lyrics and four verses

 For Clancy Brothers’ version use capo on 3rd fret. Guitar chords by Marc Fahrbach

In the (D)good old (A)colony (D)days,

When we were (A)under the (D)king

Lived a miller and a (A)weaver and a (Bm)little tai(A)lor,

Three (G)jolly (A)rogues of (D)Lynne

 

Three (D)jolly (A)rogues of (D)Lynne,

Three jolly (A)rogues of (D)Lynne

Lived a miller and a (A)weaver and a (Bm)little tai(A)lor,

Three (G)jolly (A)rogues of (D)Lynne

 

Now the (D)miller (A)he stole (D)corn,

And the weaver (A)he stole (D)yarn

And the little tail(A)or he (Bm)stole braod(A)cloth

To (G)keep these (A)three rogues (D)warm

 

To (D)keep these (A)three rogues (D)warm,

To (D)keep these (A)three rogues (D)warm

And the little tail(A)or he (Bm)stole braod(A)cloth

To (G)keep these (A)three rogues (D)warm

 

Now the (D)miller was (A)drowned in his (D)dam

And the weaver was (A)hung in his (D)yarn

And the devil got his (A)claw on the (Bm)little tail(A)or

With his (G)braodcloth (A)under his (D)arm

 

With his (D)braodcloth (A)under his (D)arm,

With his braodcloth (A)under his (D)arm

And the little tail(A)or still (Bm)runs through (A)hell,

With his (G)braodcloth (A)under his (D)arm.
