Steeleye Span - Twa Corbies chords

      
One of my favourite songs. It features Maddy Prior on lead vocals and Gay Woods on 
backing vocals. It was first recorded by them in 1970 for Hark! The Village Wait and then 
again in 1995 as "Corbies" for their album Time.


Intro:  Em  D   Em

Em D EmAs I was walking all alane
Em D EmI heard twa corbies makin' mane;
G DAnd one ontae the other did say,
Em D Em“Where shall we gang and dine the day
Em D EmWhere shall we gang and dine the day?”
Em D Em“In behind yon oul fail dyke
Em D EmI wot there lies a new slain knight;
G DAnd naebody kens that he lies there
Em D EmBut his hawk and his hound and his lady fair,
Em D EmHis hawk and his hound and his lady fair.”
Em D EmHis hawk is tae the hunting gane,
Em D EmHis hound to fetch the wildfowl hane;
G DHis lady has taken another mate
Em D EmSo we can make our dinner sweet,
Em D EmWe can make our dinner sweet”
Em D Em“You can sit on his white breast bone
Em D EmAnd I'll pick out his bonny blue een;
G DAnd with a lock of his yellow hair
Em G EmWe'll theek our nest when it grows bare,
Em G EmWe'll theek our nest when it grows bare.”
Em D Em“And many's a one for him makes mane
Em D EmNaebody kens where he has gane;
G DThrough his white bones when they grow bare
Em D EmThe wind shall blow for evermare,
Em D EmThe wind shall blow for evermare.”
