 C          Dm            C            Dm
Lady Margaret she sits in her bower sewing
   F             G7  C
Ma-ba and the lilly ba
     F             G7              C        Am
When she saw the knight with his horn a-blowing
     Dm         C             Dm
On the very first morning of May

    C          Dm            C            Dm
Oh I wish that I had that horn I hear blowing
   F             G7  C
Ma-ba and the lilly ba
    F            G7         C               Am
And that young knight to sleep here on my breast
    Dm          C            Dm
On the very first morning of May.

     C          Dm            C            Dm
Now the lady she had these words scarce spoke
   F           G7  C
Ma-ba and a lilly ba
     F             G7              C        Am
When in at her window the knight come a jumping
    Dm         C              Dm
On the very first morning of May 

    C         Dm         C          Dm
Oh strange it is, oh strange young woman
   F            G7  C
Ma-ba and the lilly ba
    F                G7                  C        Am
I can scarce blow my horn since I hear you a-calling
      Dm           C          Dm
On the very first morning of May 

      C        Dm         C            Dm
Go fetch you gold from your father’s table
     F       G7  C
Deliver it unto me
    F             G7             C        Am
And the fastest horses in your father’s stable
   Dm          C            Dm
Where there sat thirty and three

   C          Dm            C            Dm
So he’s mounted him on the black black horse
    F                 G7  C
And she’s rode the dapple grey
    F           G7                   C        Am
And they rode til they came to the broad sea-shore
    Dm          C             Dm
Just three hours before it was day

    C          Dm        C            Dm
Lie down, lie down off your horse he says
     F            G7  C
And deliver it up to me
    F         G7                C        Am
For it’s six pretty maids I have drowned here
   Dm          C             Dm
And the seventh one you shall be

    C          Dm         C            Dm
Take off, take off all your clothes he said
   F              G7  C
And deliver them unto me
F         G7                  C        Am
For they are far too fine and costly robes
   Dm           C            Dm
For to rot in the salt of the sea

    C        Dm           C            Dm
Lie down, lie down off your horse she said
     F              G7  C
And turn your back unto me
F          G7           C        Am
For it’s not fitting that any gentleman
Dm       C          Dm
A naked lady should see

    C          Dm             C            Dm
So he’s lighted him down off his horse so high
    F             G7  C
And he’s turned onto she
    F              G7             C       Am
And she’s catched around the middle so small
Dm                C                   Dm
And she’s tumbled him all down in the sea

    C       Dm        C          Dm
Sometimes he sank, sometimes he swam
     F                   G7  C
And it’s ma-ba and the lilly ba
F            G7         C        Am
Oh help, oh help me pretty mistress
Dm        C       Dm
Or drowned I shall be

    C          Dm         C            Dm
Lie there lie there oh you false young man
    F             G7  C
Lie there instead of me
     F               G7         C           Am
For it’s six pretty maids you have drowned there
    Dm            C              Dm
And the seventh one has drowned thee

      C          Dm          C            Dm
So she’s mounted her on the black black horse
    F                G7  C
And she’s led the dapple grey
     F            G7            C           Am
And she rode til she came to her father’s house
   Dm        C         Dm
An hour before it was day

   C          Dm          C        Dm
A parrot sitting up at her window side
    F                 G7  C
It’s ma-ba and the lilly ba
     F          G7        C           Am
Oh where have you been my pretty mistress
 Dm          C       Dm
An hour before it is day

   C             Dm                  C        Dm
Don’t you prattle don’t you prattle my pretty polly
    F                    G7  C
Don’t you tell the tales on me
      F              G7                C           Am
And your cage shall be made of the best glittering gold
Dm           C             Dm
And your perch of the best ivory

   C             Dm            C        Dm
But her father sitting up at his window side
    F                    G7  C
On hearing the parrot he did say
  F          G7         C         Am
Oh what is the matter my pretty polly
Dm           C               Dm
That you cry so long before day?

  C         Dm          C        Dm
Oh there come a cat to my window side
    F                    G7  C
And it’s ma-ba and the lilly ba
  F          G7      C           Am
And I was calling my pretty mistress
Dm                    C          Dm
Just to frighten that pussy cat away

This is good to play along to, but it's not faithful to the song, which is performed differently by Bellowhead.
