A Beggin' I Will Go  (Thomas D'Urfey, c.1720)

[Verse 1]
   Em                G        D              Em
Of all the trades in England, Beggin' is the best,
    Em              G             Em              D
For when a beggar's tired, He can lay him down to rest.
      Am                   Em      D      Em
And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go.
      Am                   Em      D      Em
And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go.


[Verse 2]
        Em               G         D              Em
I got a pocket for me oatmeal, And another for me rye,
        Em           G        Em              D
I got a bottle by me side, To drink when I am dry.
       Am                   Em      D      Em
And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go.
      Am                   Em      D      Em
And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go.


[Verse 3]
      Em            G            D                 Em
I got patches on me cloak, And a black patch on me knee,
         Em              G          Em               D
When you come to take me home, I'll drink as well as thee.
      Am                   Em      D      Em
And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go.
      Am                   Em      D      Em
And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go.


[Verse 4]
        Em            G         D              Em
I got a pocket for me salt, And another for me malt,
        Em             G                    Em            D
I got a pair of little crutches, You should see how I can halt.
      Am                   Em      D      Em
And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go.
      Am                   Em      D      Em
And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go.


[Verse 5]
            Em            G           D             Em
I've been a-beggin' seven years, With me ol' wooden leg,
    Em                    G               Em               D
For lame I've been, since I was born, And so I'm forced to beg.
      Am                   Em      D      Em
And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go.
      Am                   Em      D      Em
And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go.


[Verse 6]
  Em               G              D              Em
I sleep beneath an open tree, And there I pay no rent,
Em            G                 Em           D
Providence provides for me, And I am well content.
      Am                   Em      D      Em
And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go.
      Am                   Em      D      Em
And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go.


[Verse 7]
   Em            G            D            Em
I fear no plots against me, I live in open cell,
Em             G               Em              D
Who would be a king then, When beggars live so well?
      Am                   Em      D      Em
And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go.
      Am                   Em      D      Em
And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go.


[Verse 8]
   Em                G        D              Em
Of all the trades in England, Beggin' is the best,
    Em              G             Em              D
For when a beggar's tired, He can lay him down to rest.
      Am                   Em      D      Em
And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go.
      Am                   Em      D      Em
And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go.
