G             D       G        C        D   G
Now the holly bears a berry as white as the milk, 
    G    D    G                C        D   G
And Mary bore Jesus, who was wrapped up in silk: 
    G    C    G                 C  G
And Mary bore Jesus our Saviour to be,
        D                 G             Am      D  G
And the first tree in the greenwood, it was the holly.
D      G
Holly, holly,
        D                  G             Am     D  G
And the first tree in the greenwood, it was the holly.


G             D       G        C        D   G
Now the holly bears a berry as green as the grass,
    G    D    G          C       D   G 
And Mary bore Jesus, who died on the cross:
    G    C    G                 C  G
And Mary bore Jesus our Saviour to be,
    D                     G             Am      D  G
And the first tree in the greenwood, it was the holly.
D       G
Holly, holly,
        D                  G            Am      D  G
And the first tree in the greenwood, it was the holly.


G             D       G        C        D   G
Now the holly bears a berry as black as the coal,
    G    D    G          C        D   G
And Mary bore Jesus, who died for us all:
    G    C    G                 C  G
And Mary bore Jesus our Saviour to be,
    D                     G             Am      D  G
And the first tree in the greenwood, it was the holly.
D       G
Holly, holly,
        D                  G            Am      D  G
And the first tree in the greenwood, it was the holly.


G             D       G         C        D   G
Now the holly bears a berry, as blood it is red,
      G    D      G            C          D   G
Then trust we our Saviour, who rose from the dead:
    G    C    G                 C  G
And Mary bore Jesus our Saviour to be,
    D                     G             Am      D  G
And the first tree in the greenwood, it was the holly.
D       G
Holly, holly,
        D                  G            Am      D  G
And the first tree in the greenwood, it was the holly.


This carol was so named because the melody and the first 3 verses were first transcribed in the 19th century 
from the singing of a villager in St. Day (also Sans Day, or St. They - named after a Breton saint venerated 
in Cornwall) in the parish of Gwennap, Cornwall. A 4 stanza version in Cornish was subsequently published 
('Ma gron war'n gelinen').Pastor Peter Prange also pointed out that the village of St. Day in Cornwall is 
named after the saint.
