Drink Down The Moon
Steeleye Span

I have tabbed this in the key of A minor but I think the original is in F minor.
I normally play it with capo at fret 2.


      Am        G           Am
Three maidens a milking did go
      C         Am7         G
Three maidens a milking did go
        Am               G             Am               G
And the wind it did blow high, and the wind it did blow low
   Am           G                 Am
It tossed their petticoats to and fro


     Am            G              Am
They met with some young man they know
     C             Am7            G
They met with some young man they know
         Am            G       Am         G
And they boldly ask-ed him, if he had any skill
   Am           G             Am
To catch them a small bird or two


   Am         G         Am
Oh yes I've a very good skill
   C          Am7       G
Oh yes I've a very good skill
         Am              G      Am               G
And it's come along with me, to yonder flowering tree
    Am           G             Am
And I'll catch a small bird or two


        Am         G                Am
So it’s off to the green woods went they
         C          Am7             G
And it's off to the green woods went they
        Am           G             Am              G
And he tapped at the bush, and the bird it did fly in
  Am       G                  Am
A little above her lily white knee


    Am                  G          Am
Her sparkling eyes they did turn around
        C               Am7      G
Just as if she had been all in a swoon
        Am            G           Am          G
And she cried "I've a bird, and a very pretty bird
         Am        G             Am
And he's pecking away at his own ground"


Instrumental


         Am             G          Am
Here's a health to the bird in the bush
        C             Am7         G
Here's a health to the bird in the bush
          Am           G           Am          G
And we'll drink up the sun, we'll drink down the moon
        Am         G         Am
Let the people say little or much

  
      Am                 Em
There is a thorn bush in our cale yard
      G           
There is a thorn bush in our cale yard
       Am     G     Am                        Am7
At the back o'thorn bush there lays a lad and lass
            G                        Am
And they're busy busy fairing at the cuckoo's nest


Am                            Em
Hi the cuckoo, ho the cuckoo, hi the cuckoo's nest
G
Hi the cuckoo, ho the cuckoo, hi the cuckoo's nest
         Am   G    Am                           Am7
I'd give anybody a shilling and a bottle of the best
        G                             Am
That'll rumple up the feathers in the cuckoo's nest


      Am                             Em
It is thorn and it is prickle, it is compassed all around
      G                         
It is thorn and it is prickle, and it isn't easy found
    Am    G             Am                           Am7
She said “young man you blunder” and I said it isn't true
      G                              Am
And I left her with the makings of a young cuckoo


Am                            Em
Hi the cuckoo, ho the cuckoo, hi the cuckoo's nest
G
Hi the cuckoo, ho the cuckoo, hi the cuckoo's nest
         Am   G    Am                           Am7
I'd give anybody a shilling and a bottle of the best
        G                      -----   Am
That'll rumple up the feathers ^in the cuckoo's nest.
