Capo 2.


[Verse 1]

    C               D*  
The king has been a prisoner
      C        D*      C
And a prisoner long in Spain
    Em     C     G      Bm
And Willie O the Winsbury
    G                  D        C
Has lain long with his daughter Jane.


[Verse 2]

     C                                    D*  
What ails you, what ails you, my daughter Jane
        C       D*       C
Why you look so pale and wan?
    Em      C     G         Bm
Have you had any ill sickness
   G        D               C
Or yet been sleeping with a man?


[Verse 3]

C                      D*  
I have not had any ill sickness
    C        D*              C
Nor yet been sleeping with a man
  Em      C      G         Bm    
It is for you my father dear
    G         D       C
For biding so long in Spain.


[Verse 4]

C                                 D*  
Cast off, cast off, your robe and gown
      C     D*     C
Stand naked on the stone
    Em      C      G            Bm
That I may know you by your shape
   G        D         C
If you be a maiden or none.


[Verse 5]

C                              D*  
And shes cast off the robe and gown
      C     D*     C
Stood naked on the stone
    Em       C             G               Bm
her apron was tight and her waist was round
    G        D        C
Her face was pale and wan.


[Verse 6]

C                           D*  
And was it with a lord or a gentleman
     C      D*         C
Or a man of wealth and fame
   Em        C          G           Bm
Or was it with one of my serving men
      G       D           C
While I was a prisoner in Spain?


[Verse 7]

C                            D*
No it wasn't with a lord or a gentleman
     C      D*         C
Or a man of wealth and fame
   Em       C        G        Bm
It was with Willie o Winsbury
  G         D         C
I could cry no longer alone.


[Verse 8]

C                           D*
And the king has called his serving men
   C      D*         C
By one by two and by three
        Em           C        G         Bm
Saying, Where is this Willie o Winsbury?
    G      D        C
For hanged he shall be. 


[Verse 9]

C                             D*
And when they came before the king
   C       D*         C
By one, by two and by three
Em                C        G             Bm
Willie should have been the first of them
        G       D        C
But the last of them was he.


[Verse 10]

C                    D*
And Willie O the Winsbury
    C              D*  C
All dressed out in red silk
    Em       C        G               Bm
His hair hung like the strands of gold
    G          D        C
His breast was white as milk.


[Verse 11]

C                                 D*
No wonder, no wonder, the king he said,
        C         D*           C
That my daughters love you did win
   Em      C        G          Bm
If I were a woman as I am a man
      G           D          C
In my own bed you would have been.


[Verse 12]

C                              D*
And will you marry my daughter Jane
       C        D*         C
By the faith of your right hand?
    Em          C              G           Bm
And Ill make you the lord of my serving men
    G            D          C
Ill make you the heir of my land.


[Verse 13]

C                               D*
Oh yes, Ill marry your daughter Jane
       C        D*       C
By the faith of my right hand.
    Em        C           G       Bm
But Ill not be the lord of any men,
    G          D            C
Ill not be the heir to your land.


[Verse 14]

C                                    D*
And he raised her up on a milk-white steed
C            D*     C
Himself on a dapple grey
   Em          C           G             Bm
He has made her the lady of as much land
           G         D            C
As she can ride in a long summers day.
