[Chrous]
G                            Am                                 
Tellundiddy Essie? Put some milk out fer the Piskies, 
         C                                  Am          C   D
Put some milk out fer the Piskies, ere they won't leave you alone. 
G                            Am
Aaveeseenun, Essie? A Cousin Jack, your Cornishman? 
           C                       Am      D        G                             
Green as a lick red as a Dane and come to take you home? 


[Verse 1]
Em                           C                   
Matter do a' Essie, you were teazy asn adder, 
      G                                  D
A wee heller, Drough as rats and just as crafty as a fox, 
Em                                       C
Fra' bread and hair on standing stone, a proper villain ee es, 
          Am                          C                 D
Dang'rous eyes and idle charms, and a child es come by chance. 


[Chorus]
G                            Am                                 
Tellundiddy Essie? Put some milk out fer the Piskies, 
         C                                  Am          C   D
Put some milk out fer the Piskies, ere they won't leave you alone. 
G                            Am
Aaveeseenun, Essie? A Cousin Jack, your Cornishman? 
           C                       Am      D        G                             
Green as a lick red as a Dane and come to take you home? 


[Verse 2]
Em                          C
Matter do a' Essie you were sentenced and transported, 
       G                            D
Like a cat caught in a bonfire, you found yer way back home 
Em                               C
Stare'en like a stuck't pig into dang'rous eyes, t'was some chase, 
   Am                           C                 D
Ye had to plead yer belly or be turned off by the rope.


[Chorus]
G                            Am                                 
Tellundiddy Essie? Put some milk out fer the Piskies, 
         C                                  Am          C   D
Put some milk out fer the Piskies, ere they won't leave you alone. 
G                            Am
Aaveeseenun, Essie? A Cousin Jack, your Cornishman? 
           C                       Am      D        G                             
Green as a lick red as a Dane and come to take you home? 


[Verse 3]
Em                             C
Matter do a' Essie, ye've gone grey as a badger, 
          G                                  D
And ye've got no spral left in ye, close yer eyes and jes call 'ome. 
      Em                                 C
We've got no quarrel, Essie, though it's you what brung me here, 
      Am                             C              D
Ye've grown weak as a ranny, take my arm and let us go... 


[Chorus]
G                            Am                                 
Tellundiddy Essie? Put some milk out fer the Piskies, 
         C                                  Am          C   D
Put some milk out fer the Piskies, ere they won't leave you alone. 
G                            Am
Aaveeseenun, Essie? A Cousin Jack, your Cornishman? 
           C                       Am      D        G                             
Green as a lick red as a Dane and come to take you home?
