Doh!

Gee, everybody's being so helpful...
Yeah, right.
I'm the one who made the song title in the first message a clickable link, at the same time Rawhide was posting a message with a link. So, can somebody post the chords?

I don't know how to figure out the chords or tune, Henrik. However, I do have the June Tabor recording. If you have RealPlayer, I can e-mail you a copy of the recording. Click on my name below to send me e-mail.

I'm a bit late coming into this one (only 18 years!)
Surely there are some errors in the lyric given?!
"And after they've USED her briefly and roughly ...
"And after they'd done not one of them stayed ...
" ... she cries for the lonely years that are waiting (?)

You're right on all accounts, Molly. This is what Bill Caddick sings:

SHE MOVES AMONG MEN
(Bill Caddick / Jigsaw Music)

"Speak to me gently before we begin"
She pleads but they laugh and pull her down
And after they've used her briefly and roughly
They leave her to face the dawn alone

When they have gone she moves on her side
And thinks of the men that with her have laid
And none of them gave her a kind word of loving
And after they'd done not one of them stayed

Oh once she was wary and chose but a few
To roll in her arms at the end of the day
But the flower so proud begins now to wither
And any may pluck at the petals so gay

Alone in the night she muses a while
And thinks of the days and how they will pass
And she cries for the lonely years that are waiting
Till death takes her hand and weds her at last

Down in the bar room she moves among men
Who watch her and touch her whenever they can
And she notices hands and mouths as they drink
And over their tankards the eyes of each man

"Speak to me gently before we begin"

----------------------------------------
Sung by Bill Caddick on "The Home Service" (1984)
