 C          Dm            C            Dm
Lady Margaret she sits in her bower sewing
   F             G7  C
Ma-ba and the lilly ba
     F             G7              C        Am
When she saw the knight with his horn a-blowing
     Dm         C             Dm
On the very first morning of May

    C          Dm            C            Dm
Oh I wish that I had that horn I hear blowing
   F             G7  C
Ma-ba and the lilly ba
    F            G7         C               Am
And that young knight to sleep here on my breast
    Dm          C            Dm
On the very first morning of May.

     C          Dm            C            Dm
Now the lady she had these words scarce spoke
   F           G7  C
Ma-ba and a lilly ba
     F             G7              C        Am
When in at her window the knight come a jumping
    Dm         C              Dm
On the very first morning of May 

    C         Dm         C          Dm
Oh strange it is, oh strange young woman
   F            G7  C
Ma-ba and the lilly ba
    F                G7                  C        Am
I can scarce blow my horn since I hear you a-calling
      Dm           C          Dm
On the very first morning of May 

      C        Dm         C            Dm
Go fetch you gold from your father’s table
     F       G7  C
Deliver it unto me
    F             G7             C        Am
And the fastest horses in your father’s stable
   Dm          C            Dm
Where there sat thirty and three

   C          Dm            C            Dm
So he’s mounted him on the black black horse
    F                 G7  C
And she’s rode the dapple grey
    F           G7                   C        Am
And they rode til they came to the broad sea-shore
    Dm          C             Dm
Just three hours before it was day

    C          Dm        C            Dm
Lie down, lie down off your horse he says
     F            G7  C
And deliver it up to me
    F         G7                C        Am
For it’s six pretty maids I have drowned here
   Dm          C             Dm
And the seventh one you shall be

    C          Dm         C            Dm
Take off, take off all your clothes he said
   F              G7  C
And deliver them unto me
F         G7                  C        Am
For they are far too fine and costly robes
   Dm           C            Dm
For to rot in the salt of the sea

    C        Dm           C            Dm
Lie down, lie down off your horse she said
     F              G7  C
And turn your back unto me
F          G7           C        Am
For it’s not fitting that any gentleman
Dm       C          Dm
A naked lady should see

    C          Dm             C            Dm
So he’s lighted him down off his horse so high
    F             G7  C
And he’s turned onto she
    F              G7             C       Am
And she’s catched around the middle so small
Dm                C                   Dm
And she’s tumbled him all down in the sea

    C       Dm        C          Dm
Sometimes he sank, sometimes he swam
     F                   G7  C
And it’s ma-ba and the lilly ba
F            G7         C        Am
Oh help, oh help me pretty mistress
Dm        C       Dm
Or drowned I shall be

    C          Dm         C            Dm
Lie there lie there oh you false young man
    F             G7  C
Lie there instead of me
     F               G7         C           Am
For it’s six pretty maids you have drowned there
    Dm            C              Dm
And the seventh one has drowned thee

      C          Dm          C            Dm
So she’s mounted her on the black black horse
    F                G7  C
And she’s led the dapple grey
     F            G7            C           Am
And she rode til she came to her father’s house
   Dm        C         Dm
An hour before it was day

   C          Dm          C        Dm
A parrot sitting up at her window side
    F                 G7  C
It’s ma-ba and the lilly ba
     F          G7        C           Am
Oh where have you been my pretty mistress
 Dm          C       Dm
An hour before it is day

   C             Dm                  C        Dm
Don’t you prattle don’t you prattle my pretty polly
    F                    G7  C
Don’t you tell the tales on me
      F              G7                C           Am
And your cage shall be made of the best glittering gold
Dm           C             Dm
And your perch of the best ivory

   C             Dm            C        Dm
But her father sitting up at his window side
    F                    G7  C
On hearing the parrot he did say
  F          G7         C         Am
Oh what is the matter my pretty polly
Dm           C               Dm
That you cry so long before day?

  C         Dm          C        Dm
Oh there come a cat to my window side
    F                    G7  C
And it’s ma-ba and the lilly ba
  F          G7      C           Am
And I was calling my pretty mistress
Dm                    C          Dm
Just to frighten that pussy cat away

This is good to play along to, but it's not faithful to the song, which is performed differently by Bellowhead.

Lack of accuracy. It does not sound like the song described, perhaps it belongs to another version of the song. Not a bad chord progression though.
