[Verse 1]

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

[Verse 2]

E                             C
"Oh I wish that I had that horn I hear blowing"
A             A
And it's ma ba and the lilly ba
C                            C
"And that young knight to sleep here on my breast"
E                            B
On the very first morning of May

[Verse 3]

E                             C
Well the lady she had these words scarce spoke
A             A
And it's ma ba and the lilly ba
C                            C
When in at her window the knight come a-jumping
E                            B
On the very first morning of May

[Verse 4]

E                             C
"Oh strange it is, oh strange young woman"
A             A
And it's ma ba and the lilly ba
C                            C
"I can scarce blow my horn since I hear you a-calling
E                            B
On the very first morning of May"

[Verse 5]

E                             C
"Go fetch you gold from your father's table
A             A
Deliver it unto me
C                            C
And the two fastest horses in your father's stable
E                            B
Where there stand thirty and three"

[Verse 6]

E                             C
So he's mounted him on the black, black horse
A             A
And she's rode on the dappled grey
C                            C
And they rode till they come to the broad sea shore
E                            B
Just three hours before it was day

[Verse 7]

E                             C
"Light down, light down from your horse," he says
A             A
"And deliver it unto me
C                            C
For it's six pretty maids I have drown?d here
E                            B
And the seventh one you shall be"

[Verse 8]

E                             C
"Take off, take off your clothes," he says
A             A
"And deliver them unto me
C                            C
For they are too fine and costly robes
E                            B
For to rot in the salt, salt sea"

[Verse 9]

E                             C
"Light down, light down from your horse," she says
A             A
"And turn your back on me
C                            C
For it's not fitting that any gentle man
E                            B
A naked lady should see"

[Verse 10]

E                             C
So he's mounted him down off his horse so high
A             A
And he's turned his back on she
C                            C
And she catched him around the middle so small
E                            B
And tumbled him all down in the sea

[Verse 11]

E                             C
Sometimes he sank, sometimes he swam
A             A
And it's ma ba and the lilly ba
C                            C
"Oh help, oh help, oh my pretty mistress
E                            B
Or drown?d I shall be"

[Verse 12]

E                             C
"Lie there, lie there oh you false young man
A             A
Lie there instead of me
C                            C
For it's six pretty maids you have drown?d here
E                            B
And the seventh one has drown?d thee"

[Verse 13]

E                             C
So she's mounted her on the black, black horse
A             A
And she's led the dappled grey
C                            C
And she rode til she come to her father's house
E                            B
An hour before it was day

[Verse 14]

E                             C
And a parrot sitting up on her window side
A             A
And it's mah bah and the lilly bah
C                            C
"Oh where have you been, oh my pretty mistress
E                            B
So long before it is day?"

[Verse 15]

E                             C
"Don't you prittle, don't you prattle, oh my pretty polly
A             A
Don't you tell the tales on me
C                            C
And your cage shall be made of the best glitt'ring gold
E                            B
Your perch of the best ivory"

[Verse 16]

E                             C
But her father sitting up at his window-side
A             A
On a-hearing the parrot did say
C                            C
"Oh, what is the matter, oh my pretty polly
E                            B
That you cry so long before the day?"

[Verse 17]

E                             C
"Oh there come a cat to my window side"
A             A
And it's ma ba and the lilly ba
C                            C
"And I was a-calling my pretty mistress"
E                            B
Just to frighten that pussy-cat away...
