Help !

I'm looking for the chords and tab to "Drunken Maidens" recorded by Tim Hart & Maddy Prior on Summer Soltice or by Fairport Convention on Tippler's Tales.

It's in the DT. Look for "Three Drunken Maidens". I'm familiar with a version by John Roberts & Tony Barrand

Hi Doc, Hi Bob,
We used to play somewhat different version than that in DT. Please find guitar chords included (rather simple as usual):


THREE DRUNKEN MAIDENS
(2/4)
There (G)were three drunken (C)maidens came (D)down from the Isle of (G)Wight
They started to drink on (C)Monday never (D)stopped till Saturday (G)night
On (D7)Saturday night they came my lads but (G)still they wouldn't get (D)out
And (G)then three drunken (C)maidens did (D)push the jug (G)about

Then in came dancing Sally her cheeks a rosy bloom
Shove o'er you jolly sisters and give young Sal some room
And I will be your equal before the evening's out
And then three drunken maidens they pushed the jug about

They had woodcock and pheasant, partridge and hare
And every sort of dainty, no shortage there was there
They'd forty gallons of beer me lads but still they wouldn't get out
And then three drunken maidens they pushed the jug about

Then in came the landlord, he was looking for his pay
Forty pounds for beer me lads these girls were forced to pay
They had ten pounds apiece me lads but still they wouldn't get out
And then three drunken maidens they pushed the jug about

Where are your fancy hats and your mantles rich and fine?
They've all been swallowed up me lads with tankards of fine wine
And where are your fancy men, young maidens frisk and gay?
You left them in the ale house and it's there you'll have to pay.


Doc, if you need more (i.e. music sheet with notes) please let me know here at DT or just e-mail.
Bye

Needs some work. Some versions lack maidenheads, which make me think Mr. Bowdler has been work.

I am from the Isle of Wight and, naturally, we don't sing this scurrilous ditty down there. It is probably a Portsmouth or Southampton song. They must be jealous because they were born the wrong side of the water.

Four Drunken Maidens

There were three drunken maidens Came from the Isle of Wight
They drunk from Friday morning clear through to Saturday night
When Saturday night it did come round these 3 they wouldn’t go out
And these three drunken maidens, They pushed the jug about.


Then in comes bouncing Sally, Her cheeks as red as blooms
“Move up me jovial sisters, And give young Sal some room
And I will be your equal Before the night is out”
And these four drunken maidens, They pushed the jug about.


There's woodcock and pheasant, and partridge and hare
And every sort of dainty, No scarcity was there
There's forty quarts of beer, me boys, They fairly drunk them out
And these four drunken maidens, Still pushed the jug about.


Then up comes the landlord, He's asking for his pay
There’s a forty pound bill, me boys These gals have got to pay
That's ten pounds apiece, me boys, But still they wouldn't go out
And these four drunken maidens, Still pushed the jug about.


Oh where are your feather hats, Your mantles rich and fine?
They all got swallowed up, me lads, In tankards of good wine
And where are your maidenheads, You maidens brisk and gay?
We left them in the alehouse, We’ve drunk them clean away.
