this is a song recorded on Paescod's Fible Fable, by a guest singer.
The squire and the baker and the landlord of the inn
Caught him with their daughters three
A crime they cried a sin!
They dragged him to the crossroads
And strung him up on high
On the topmost branch of the gallows tree and left him there to die.
TBH I know most of the words to the other verses, but think that I am missing a verse out when I try to sing it.
It has 3 verses, then the 'chorus'
A fine night my noble lord
Enchante ma madame
Pray let me introduce myself
I am the Devil's highwayman!
Spare your ring of silver
Likewise your ring of gold
And I might even spare your life
If you sell to me your soul!
The problem is, I only know one more verse then a final chorus (slightly different) where I know that the recording has two of the above choruses before the finishing one... aargh?
Anybody know it?
